The purpose of the Society of Women Engineers is to empower the female engineering students of The Cooper Union and help them become successful professionals and leaders.


SWE hosts networking events, such as alumnae panels, and also organizes trips to SWE conferences, allowing students a chance to attend major career fairs and professional talks. SWE also hosts events that promote discussion about the engineering school environment for women at Cooper Union. By participating in philanthropic events, SWE provides a way for students to give back to their communities through visits from local elementary schools and after-school programs. Additionally, by hosting various social functions, SWE allows female students a chance to bond and, therefore, help strengthen the Cooper Union community as a whole.
