The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) recently gave its Silver Award to the SWE student section at Arizona State University. The award recognizes it as one of the top-achieving sections nationwide.
The ASU group has been steadily expanding its community outreach and other efforts to promote engineering education to girls, encourage young women to enter the engineering professions and provide its members opportunities to network with professional engineers.
About 50 active members have been volunteering their time in the past year to organize and coordinate education outreach events such as GEAR Day and WOW! That’s Engineering.
