SWE Partners with Michigan Engineering to Help Women Engineers Explore the Career Option of Graduate School

Michigan Engineering and SWE have created a new partnership to provide valuable resources and information to help women engineers explore the career option of graduate school. The University of Michigan partnered with the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers for a similar program. The goal of these partnerships is to make sure women engineers are aware of the benefits of graduate school.
