Engineering Tomorrow’s Career (ETC) Camp is a week-long outreach effort open to female high school students in the Midwest. It is run by two SWE officers who are represented by the College of Engineering Diversity Affairs Office (DAO) with support from the ETC Committee, National SWE, and the Pre-College Council. The goals of this camp include giving girls the opportunity to explore various disciplines within engineering, meet other young women with similar interests, and experience college life. Typical activities include lectures, labs, and tours of UW-Madison engineering facilities. The activities cover nearly all fields of engineering offered at UW to give campers a chance to find out what interests them the most. Campers and counselors dine and stay overnight in one of UW’s Lakeshore dorms, Dejope Residence Hall, for the week.
Meet the 2020 Engineering Tomorrow’s Careers Camp Co-Chairs!
My name is Savannah Vajgrt and I’m a junior in Chemical Engineering. I haven’t been involved with SWE for very long, but already I have been so inspired by the incredible people and mission of the organization. I was in the ETC committee this past semester and will be a counselor for the camp this coming summer. I can usually be found reading, tending to my plants, or just being outside as much as possible!
Hello! My name is Grace Bonde, and I am a junior studying Chemical Engineering and French. I joined SWE my freshman year and have loved being involved in so many of SWE’s opportunities on campus. From the mentoring families and volunteering events, to the Boeing Tech Team and professional development, SWE has had a huge role in helping me grow both professionally and personally while at UW-Madison. I’m incredibly excited to be one of this year’s ETC Camp Co-Chairs, and I’m so proud to be organizing a camp that shares the camaraderie and campus connections I’ve found with SWE.
