It is a prestigious national organization numbering in the thousands with international membership. The purposes of a student chapter of SWE at USMA are:

  • To encourage young women cadets to enter the engineering to engineering-related majors or fields of study at USMA and to provide a professional support mechanism for these women.
  • To inform women cadets of the qualifications and achievements of women engineers and scientists.
  • To inform women cadets of the opportunities open to them as engineers in the Army and also in the remainder of their careers of service to the nation.
