The Yale University section of the Society of Women Engineers will strive to create a strong community of engineers at Yale with a passion for engineering and commitment to women’s issues in the field in common. This community will not only serve women undergraduates, graduate students, and post doctoral fellows, but enthusiastically welcomes all with an interest in engineering, and in particular, an interest in women’s issues in engineering. The objectives of the organization are three-fold: creating an even stronger community of engineers on Yale’s campus, engaging in activities to support our professional development and enriching our academics, and reaching out to the Yale community as a whole to share our love of engineering with others.


High School Engineering Day

June 2017

During the 2017 High School Engineering Day, we helped students create customizable motion-sensing LED bracelets. We hope that students were able to gain confidence in their engineering skills through conquering intimidating tasks like wiring a breadboard and understanding Arduino code! 

Small Group Discussion with Ursula Burns

April 2017

We were honored to participate in a small group discussion with Ursula Burns, Chairman of the board and former CEO of Xerox Corporation. Ursula gave insightful and honest answers to questions surrounding the theme of “finding your path as a millennial engineer.” We loved getting to share this experience with the National Society of Black Engineers, the Yale League of Black Scientists, and FIRST Robotics alums!
