Boeing Tech Team

What is Boeing Tech Team?

The Boeing Tech Team is the UW-Madison Society of Women Engineers’ design team that competes in the SWE Team Tech competition sponsored by Boeing. It is a national SWE competition where teams from universities across the country partner with a company and carry out a design project. This competition emphasizes the importance of teamwork and interface with industry in the engineering educational process. Teams may consist of up to 12 members and must complete a project over the course of 6 months (January – June). Chosen teams will present their completed project at the SWE National Conference in the fall.

Interested in collaborating with a company and designing a project from start to finish? Weekly Meetings are held on Fridays from 4:00-5:00 pm in room 3164 of Mechanical Engineering.  For more information email Celina ( or Elizabeth (

Last year our Boeing Tech Team worked with Mortenson. Our project was to develop a tool to perform a nondestructive test of the firestopping insulation installed around wall penetrations. To perform a proper test our product needed to measure the depth and thickness of the caulk performing a destructive test by manually ripping apart the installed caulk and measuring it. We will be presenting our design project at the National SWE conference in Anaheim in November. Thank you Celina Ough for leading the team!

Founded in 1954, Mortenson is a U.S. based builder, developer, and provider of energy and engineering services committed to helping organizations move their strategies forward. Mortenson’s expanding portfolio of integrated services ensures that its customers’ investments result in high-performing assets.

Boeing would also like to thank WESC and the WOLDT family for there generous $1,000 competition grant for the Boeing Tech Team last year.
