Society of Women Engineers

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a not-for-profit educational and service organization founded in 1950 that empowers women to succeed and advance in the field of engineering, and to be recognized for their life-changing contributions as engineers and leaders. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career for women through an exciting array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, and outreach and advocacy activities.

Grand Valley State University has maintained a collegiate SWE section since 2012. We hope to promote engineering as a fun, rewarding career option for all students, and encourage women to achieve their full potential. Our goal is to connect our members with the West Michigan community through networking events, service opportunities, group field trips and educational outreach.

Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society

Tau Beta Pi is an engineering honor society which bestows honors on junior and senior undergraduate engineering students who display exemplary character and outstanding academic achievement. The chapter at Grand Valley partakes in several community outreach projects each year including helping out at the regional Science Olympiad tournament hosted at Grand Valley along with the local National Electric Cart Association races. Tau Beta Pi is more than just a title on a resume. To be a Tau Beta Pi member you must demonstrate that you not only excel in academia but you strive to do more for your community and your peers. Tau Beta Pi members want to further their education and the education of their community.
