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!

2017 Region F Conference

February 2017

We had a wonderful time at the 2017 SWE Region F Conference at UConn last Saturday! Big congratulations to Rita Matta on being awarded 1st place in the grad poster competition, as well as to the gradSWE eboard for winning an “Outstanding Communications Award”. We’re already pumped for WE17!

Second Annual SWE Etiquette Dinner

February 2017

Etiquette Educator Robert Shutt returned to New Haven this year to teach engineering undergrads and grads about proper business etiquette. We were thrilled to learn how to “shine while you dine”!

Gingerbread Social

December 2016

Creating gingerbread houses was the perfect way to relax right before finals week. This undergrad and graduate event was a hit–check out some of the impressive gingerbread houses that were constructed!

SWE Outreach: Programmable Gardens

December 2016

We loved getting to work with high school students to build a “programmable garden”. The students programmed an arduino to automate the watering of a plant through a humidity sensor.

Yale SWE Attends National Conference

October 2016

12 members of SWE attended the WE16 national SWE conference in Philadelphia PA. The event was inspiring and productive for all who attended! We’re excited to report that our section received two awards! Additionally, all of the undergraduate members who attended received interviews—and many currently have internship or job offers!
