There are a lot of great ways to get involved in Purdue SWE. For more information please explore the links below. To get involved or get more information, contact the chair in-charge of what you are interested in by looking at the executive board here or visit us during office hours! If you don't want to join a committee, we would love to see you at our events. You can also get involved by joining PSWE on BoilerLink!

 

 

Office Assistants

Back to Top

 

Each executive board member is required to be in the PSWE office (HAMP G216A) at least one hour per week.  Office assistants are members who are not currently on the executive board but have an office hour once a week with a respective executive board member.  Being an office assistant is a great way to learn more about SWE and decide whether you want to get more involved and be on our executive board.  Being an office assistant also allows you to help your respective executive board member with his or her events or SWE duties.  Many of our executive board members were office assistants before they became board members.

 

Find the current office hours schedule here.

For more information about Office Assistants, contact Stephanie Godoshian (sgodoshi@purdue.edu).

Outreach Committee

Back to Top

 

Engineering outreach is a major part of SWE’s infrastructure, and finding creative ways to get kids engaged and excited about their future is just one way we have fun in this committee. The Outreach Committee plans and leads interactive activities to motivate students to pursue engineering.

For more information about the Outreach Committee, please contact Andrea Tabar (atabar@purdue.edu).

Grand Prix Team

Back to Top

SWE competes as one of the only female majority race teams for the annual Purdue Grand Prix Race. No experience is necessary. Start at the beginning of the Fall Semester to learn how a go-kart works and what goes into building one, then join the pit crew (or become the driver) to help us succeed on race day. 

 

For more information about Grand Prix, please contact Olivia Riedling (oriedlin@purdue.edu) or Gabrielle Selvia (gselvia@purdue.edu).

Team Tech

Back to Top

Our Team Tech team partners with a local company and develops a solution to a problem given by the firm. The team works from the initial problem statement to solution design to building a prototype, and ends with a presentation at the all SWE Annual Conference.

For more information about TeamTech, please contact Alia Ahmed (ahmed119@purdue.edu) or Yizhou Fang (fang209@purdue.edu).

Intramural Teams

Back to Top

 

Become a SWampion! (Yes, we did just combine SWE and champion) Our intramural teams are casual and act as a way to get to know fellow SWE members while competing in soccer, sand volleyball, inner tube water polo, and so much more! No experience is necessary for any teams.

 

For more information about intramurals, please contact Nia Isom (nisom@purdue.edu).

 

Senior Sneak Peek Hostess

Back to Top

 

Be a mentor and help future college students decide Purdue is the best choice! As a Senior Sneak Peak hostess you will bring the high school senior to your classes for the day and participate in fun SWE activities all night. There is an optional sleeopver option, where you and your mentee have a sleepover in your dorm that night. This is a fun way to show your love for the school and help a high school senior through a tough life decision.

 

For more information, please contact Priya Desarazu (pdesaraz@purdue.edu) or Hannah Stiffler (hstiffle@purdue.edu).

Girl Scout Day Volunteer

Back to Top

 

Join PSWE in welcoming Brownie, Junior, and Cadette Girl Scouts (grades 2-8) to Purdue’s campus for a fun day of hands-on engineering activities!  Girl Scouts will learn about the many different ways engineering is used every day and try their skills in several of these areas.  As a volunteer, you’ll be able to share your enthusiasm for engineering as you lead and assist the Girl Scouts in their activities.  Girl Scout Day is typically held on two Saturdays, once during the fall semester and once in the spring.
