The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a not-for-profit educational and service organization that empowers women to succeed and advance in the field of engineering, and to be recognized for their life-changing contributions as engineers and leaders. Founded in 1950, SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career for women through an exciting array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, outreach and advocacy activities, and much more.
The San Diego County Professional Section (SWE-SD) was chartered in 1982 and is now one of the largest SWE sections in the country. Our programs and publications have won national acclaim, while our growth and dynamic leaders have won global attention.
SWE-San Diego is managed by an elected, volunteer Executive Council, responsible for ensuring the financial and professional well-being of the Section. Officers and committee chairs work together to set and accomplish local goals of growth and visibility, while contributing to the Society’s strategic plan. We are very fortunate to have amazing individuals dedicate their time and effort to these goals and SWE's mission.
The members of SWE-San Diego come from diverse areas such as government, defense, research, consulting and manufacturing. Whichever field of engineering you are in, you will find like-minded members!
