Projects, outreach, competitions, conferences, etc.:

All of SWE's activities are for the purpose of providing a social and professional support network for female engineering students. For students' professional development we provide face-to-face time for students to learn about all kinds of engineering industries from the companies themselves, resume workshops run by hiring managers straight from industry, and mock interviews hosted by HR managers. SWE has a close partnership with 100+ Women Strong, a group of successful Auburn female engineering alumni, who host Lunch and Learns with our SWE section. In these sessions, ladies from 100+ WS from various industries teach students about various topics from grad school to dressing professionally. Auburn SWE always has a significant presence at the annual SWE national conference.

Also, SWE participates in several different community activities from outreach to philanthropy. We take part in Big Event, AUDM, as well as volunteer at the Lee Country Humane Society. Many of our members actively volunteer with the College of Engineering at events such at PEAK, E-Day, and TEAMS. We also host several outreach events such at hosting a mini career fair of all the different engineering disciplines at one of the local middle schools to get the students interested in a career in engineering. A large event for SWE in the spring semester is Scouts in STEM, where the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama can take part in various STEM activities on campus.
