Breaking Barriers Women Unite

Breaking Barriers Women Unite is an annual dinner and guest panel event for the female members of RPIs Society of Women, Hispanic Professional, and Black Engineers. Participants and guests discuss finding success as a professional woman in engineering careers, overcoming challenges and other advice. Participants gather at tables and guests from academia and industry rotate through so members are able to network with many different women in a close and intimate setting. For more information contact the Vice President at connea@rpi.edu.

Exploring Engineering Day

Exploring Engineering Day is a yearly day program of hands-on engineering activities for local Boy and Girl Scouts planned by RPI SWEs Engineering Event Director and RPIs School of Engineering. Activities are designed to spark interest in science and technology and to encourage them to consider pursuing careers in the engineering field. Participants exercise their problem-solving, brainstorming, design, and teamwork skills in hands-on activities that cover a wide range of engineering disciplines including electrical, biomedical, aeronautical, and mechanical engineering.

General Body Meetings

Once a month, RPI SWE holds our general body meetings. The first half hour is dedicated to SWE business and announcements, while the second half is handed over to a speaker to present on personal or professional development. In the past we have had speakers from Proctor & Gamble, University of Michigan, General Electric, and RPIs Archer Center, among others.
