News and Recent Events

On May 20th we recognized 4 young women from the Central New York region who are headed to college for STEM related majors in the coming fall. In addition to our members, we joined by representatives of several of our sponsors, the scholarship recipients, and the recipients families and teachers, as well as by our Keynote Speaker, Katie Backus, PE, Vice President of Gas Program Delivery at National Grid.  The event was held at Carrier, in East Syracuse, NY. Though this was not a record breaking year in regards to sponsorship we still received outstanding support from both long-term and new sponsors- each recipient received a $1750 scholarship.  It was a lovely evening and we look forward to continuing the tradition in 2025.

Thank you to the professionals who volunteered to share their experiences and advice! The event was well attended and we are excited to be able continue to collaborate with the collegiate section.

New Website!

Welcome to our newly redesigned website! Please pardon any glitches and as you may notice, some aspects are a bit visually bare-bones. If you are a SWE member and interested in helping either test website functionality (do links work? how are the visuals/navigation on desktop vs mobile vs tablet?, etc) or would like to help make the site more visually appealing, please email us. An interest meeting will be held at some point in November.

Apple Picking

In early October SWE members and friends met up at Beak & Skiff in LaFayette. We enjoyed beautiful weather, food, drinks, and apple picking! Thank you to everyone who came!
