For the fourth year, PepsiCo will be partnering with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to offer the 2018 PepsiCo Student Engineering Competition. Open to engineering students across the United States, this Challenge invites teams (which must include a SWE Member) to submit an engineering solution to a problem designed by PepsiCo engineers.
The three finalist teams will receive an all-expense paid trip to SWE’s Annual Conference, WE18, in Minneapolis, MN to present in front of a PepsiCo panel for cash prizes. Teams will be recognized during the Celebrate SWE! event at WE18.
March 1, 2018 is currently targeted as the release date for this year’s challenge and all submissions will be due in the summer of 2018.
WE18, SWE’s Annual Conference, is in Minneapolis, Minnesota, October 18-20, 2018. The theme this year is "Let’s Break Boundaries." For three days, thousands of women in engineering and technology will connect with one another and celebrate how they are breaking boundaries every day. They’re crashing through barriers: graduating from engineering schools around the globe, working at top engineering firms, and innovating solutions to the world’s biggest challenges.
The Society of Women Engineers, founded in 1950, is the world’s largest advocate and catalyst for change for women in engineering and technology. The not-for-profit educational and service organization is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. To ensure SWE members reach their full potential as engineers and leaders, the Society offers unique opportunities to network, provides professional development, shapes public policy and provides recognition for the life-changing contributions and achievements of women engineers. As a champion of diversity, SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in their personal and professional lives. For more information about the Society, please visit www.swe.org or call 312.596.5223.
