Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

A national organization geared to promoting women in the engineering and technology fields. SWE promotes the outreach of young women into the STEM fields and gives members resources to grow in their professional career. It is open to both women and men. Activities include attending the national conference which changes location each year, and the regional conference. We sponsor an engineering day with Girl Scouts, and put on a Mr. Engineer competition.
