Welcome to the website of the Society of Women Engineers at Princeton University!Our group is dedicated to promoting a sense of community among female BSE students, professors, and alumnae of Princeton and to introduce younger girls to the various opportunities offered by studying engineering. We hold study breaks and other social events throughout the year for interested students. Our calendar also includes various industry outreach opportunities. At two girl scouts events each year, local girls earn science and technology badges with members of our club. At our High School Colloquiums we help introduce high school students to the various branches of engineering and offer an insight into these fields that they might otherwise not consider studying.
Traditionally, engineering has been thought of as being predominantly male, yet this is a trend that has been steadily reversing. Engineering in general has much greater salary parity between men and women than most other fields and continues to offer great employment rates and job security to both men and women. Engineers are at the forefront in the development of that technology that is driving our society forward. It is our aim to continue to promote these fields to women who might not have considered studying them, and to offer support to the women who do!
