Welcome Future NDSU SWE Members!
A Warm Welcome from the President: Kjersten Winkelman
Dear Future SWE Member,
My name is Kjersten Winkelman and I am the President of the SWE Chapter at NDSU for the 2020-2021 School Year. On behalf of our entire chapter on campus, I would like to welcome you to NDSU. The Engineering Program at NDSU offers so many opportunities for students to grow in their knowledge, leadership, and professional career. At NDSU, we have a local chapter of Society of Women Engineers, which is a professional organization for college students and professionals worldwide.
Our chapter is very active, both on campus and in our community. What we do at NDSU is described perfectly in the National SWE Organization’s mission statement, “Empower women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.”
Some ways you can be involved in SWE at NDSU is through Outreach Events, such as TechKids, where SWE Members volunteer weekly to help teach local boys and girls about the science, technology, engineering, and mathematical fields. We also host monthly meetings with featured speakers (and free food!). Our members have the opportunity to attend National and Local Conferences through SWE funding. This November, 19 of our own members will attend the National SWE Conference in New Orleans, LA!
I have grown so much during my involvement with SWE and have met some amazing classmates that have become close friends. SWE is a great way to stay involved, meet new people, and grow as a person during your time at NDSU. I would love to see you at one of our meetings or events! I look forward to getting to know you!
