Welcome to the SWE Pittsburgh Section Website!
We are an active, widely dispersed section, with a membership base that spans across Pittsburgh and into many of the surrounding areas. We provide support for women in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields at all stages in their careers - from K-12 exploration of potential careers to retired engineers looking to maintain ties and pass on their experience, and everything in between.
Monthly meetings are held in different areas of Pittsburgh to accommodate our member's commute times and locations.
A job board section in our monthly newsletter is available to area companies to help put women engineers in contact with promising roles and to put companies in contact with high quality women engineers. Submit your job listings with Ruth Wuenschel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
