Society of Women Engineers
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a network of engineering students and professionals dedicated to supporting women in engineering. Our mission is to empower women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion. Our chapter participates in STEM activities on and off campus and would encourage all who are interested to join.

National engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi was founded in 1885. Membership is by invitation and is restricted to juniors and seniors who show distinguished scholarship and exemplary character. The Mississippi Beta Chapter at Ole Miss participates in tutoring, Engineering Day and other service endeavors. Its purpose is to encourage scholarship and professionalism among engineering students.
Engineers Without Borders (EWB-USA)
EWB-USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. The University of Mississippi Chapter of the EWB-USA intends to offer engineering service opportunities and cultivates life-long learning spirits of the engineering profession, which, in turn, is expected to impact the lives of the less privileged citizens of the world.
