SWENext & SWENext Clubs

SWENext is a way for girls to become a part of the SWE engineering community as a student through the age of 18. SWENexters have access to programs, mentors, and resources designed to develop leadership skills and self-confidence to #BeThatEngineer and succeed in a career in engineering and technology.  Although our program focuses on girls, all students are encouraged to get involved.  Click here to learn more about the benefits of joining SWENext.
