An organization is only as strong as its reach. This understanding is manifested in the alignment of our goals to that of women engineers at Drexel. The university is already teeming with immeasurably powerful and driven young women. Drexel SWE provides an outlet for that ability and turns these women into the leaders of tomorrow.
Ultimately, Drexel University’s chapter of SWE is just a portion of a much larger network of powerful and innovative female engineers in all facets of industry and academia. This means that our resources and connections extend across the country.
Drexel boasts one of the oldest cooperative education programs in the country. As a professional society we actively recognize the opportunities made available through this intensive work experience curriculum. By hosting workshops and inviting respected professionals to speak, our organization makes it possible for members to become stronger job candidates and better employees. Skills such as effective presenting, strong cover letter writing, and confidence as a woman in the workplace are refined. It is in our community of leaders that members are encouraged to take the initiative to excel within their co-op positions and future careers.
