MIT Society of Engineers was founded in 1979. Since then, we have strived to inspire younger generations about engineering, encourage the notion of diversity in engineering, and determine and advocate for the needs of women engineers at MIT and the broader community.
Location: We offer programs on-campus (at MIT) and off-campus programs for schools located in the city (Boston, Cambridge).
MIT Society of Women Engineers is one of the largest, most active student-run organizations at MIT with over 300 undergraduate and graduate members. We strive to empower women to succeed and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders in STEM fields. There are 10+ outreach programs that take place at MIT, in schools in the Greater Boston Area, and virtually through the web.
MIT SWE holds year long on-campus programs such as Keys to Empowering Youth (KEYs) and Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) while others occur on an event-to-event basis. Other on-campus programs include Girl Scouts Outreach and #HelloWorld (teaching girls how to code in HTML/CSS/JS).
In addition, there are off-campus programs for nearby schools for elementary, middle, and high schoolers where MIT SWE members go for an hour of STEM-related hands-on activities.
To be in touch with all of our events, join the mailing list for MIT SWE digests! All the outreach programs are in further detail at http://swe.mit.edu/outreach/.
