The Society of Women Engineers Boston Professional Section presents
"What does an Engineer do?"
We will be hosting a panel consisting of members from our SWE membership and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) professionals in the community. We would like to invite high school students (particularly sophomores and juniors) to participate as our audience. For this panel discussion, we will describe how each panelist got involved in the field of engineering, what their daily job as engineering professionals entails, and how they see their professional career developing on the basis of their engineering degree. We will follow this information period with a question and answer session from the audience.
