SWE National Conference 2014
The Citadel Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Chapter Attends the SWE National Conference: October 22 – 25, 2014
Five cadets, two evening students, and a faculty advisor traveled to Los Angeles, CA, to attend the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) national conference. The Citadel students joined about 7000 collegiate and professional women engineers that gathered to grow professionally, network, and talk about career opportunities. Students attended several professional development sessions, companies’ hospitality suites, and the Career Fair with hundreds participating companies, government agencies, and universities. The entire Citadel group benefited greatly from the sessions, activities and interactions during the conference and gave positive feedback about the overall unique experience. Last but not least, one cadet, Mariah Cann (ELEC), got a summer internship with Northrop Grumman Corporation after interviewing with them at the career fair and the other students built relationships with companies that could lead to future internships or full time jobs.
