Evening with Industry 2021
Evening with Industry (EWI) is a networking career fair that provides engineering and computer science students with the opportunity to participate in discussions with representatives from various companies.

Evening With Industry 2020
Each spring SWE sponsors its annual Evening with Industry (EWI), a career fair and formal dinner, that provides UW-Madison engineering students and company representatives the opportunity to network and discuss career opportunities. Evening with Industry 2020 was a huge success with 26 companies, 60 company representatives, and over 100 students in attendance! Of the students in attendance, over 50% were sophomores and the other 50% was split equally among the other years. There was a fairly even distribution of majors represented between Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Industrial and Systems, and Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. After attending EWI, 97% of students said that the event helped them improve their networking skills and comfort levels with career fairs.
This year, the event was held on February 4th at Union South in Madison, WI and included a career fair, formal dinner, and scholarship presentations from the UW-Madison SWE section and the Robyn Ryan Memorial fund. We finished the night off with a raffle drawing with donations provided by AE2S, Cargill, H.B. Fuller, Mass. Electric Construction Co, Oracle, TDS Telecommunications, and Twin Disc. Thank you to all the students and company representatives who attended, to all the SWE members for helping throughout the planning process, and to the College of Engineering and Computer Science Faculty for helping advertise the event. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the EWI contact list. Stay tuned for details on EWI 2021!
Thank you to the companies that donated to our raffle drawing!
Meet the Professional Development Officer!
Hey there! My name is Amber Zedeck, and I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering. Freshmen year while juggling classes and other responsibilities, a girl in my class mentioned to me that there was this amazing organization for women in stem and that I should come to an event. That conversation sparked my initial involvement in SWE, and last year I was the ETC officer and I am so excited to now be serving as the Professional Development Officer! I cannot wait to organize EWI for engineers filled with opportunities to connect with professionals and peers with similar goals and interests.
