Each semester, SWE’s Mentoring officers create teams of students with similar majors. Each mentoring team consists of a mixture of underclassmen and upperclassmen giving students the opportunity to connect with other SWE members in their major and to receive advice about classes, research opportunities, major specific clubs, and more. There is also a 1:1 mentoring program that matches interested underclassman with an upperclassman in order to give them an opportunity to foster a more personal relationship with someone in the same major.

Upcoming Events

All SWE events (Mentoring Events included!) are virtual- please check out our calendar for more details and event specifics.

Meet the 2020-21 Mentoring Co-Chairs!

Maria Korkos

Hi! My name is Maria Korkos and I am a Junior in Mechanical Engineering. When I am not studying and doing work I like to explore new places, try new foods around Madison, and take bike rides! I have been a member of SWE since I was a freshman and have served as the Special Events Co-Chair and am now the Mentoring Co-Chair. Hope to see you all virtually ?!




Natalie Schuler

Hey Everyone! My name is Natalie Schuler and I am one of the mentoring co-chairs this year! I am a sophomore studying chemical engineering, and from Boulder, CO. I first found out about UW-Madison’s chapter of SWE at the day on campus event my senior year of high school, and now I’m so excited to be an officer for SWE. I love going hiking, exploring, baking, and am always down to binge a new netflix show. I am very excited to get to know you all this year in SWE.
