Students/SWENext

Talk with an Engineer (or Engineering Student)

Are you considering engineering or computer science as a career?
Do you have questions? We have answers!

High school students can sign up for a 30-minute virtual session with a woman engineer or engineering student to discuss anything STEM-career related such as
preparing for college, resumes, college choices, majors/degrees, types of engineering, what engineers do, etc.

Your questions, your choice!

This program is currently limited to SWENexters in 9th – 12th grades in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and New Jersey.

The program is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Society of Women Engineers section and the Southern New Jersey Society of Women Engineers section.
