As part of their commitment to increase the representation of women in engineering, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) at the University of Virginia invites female junior and senior high school students to spend a weekend on Grounds exploring majors and careers in engineering. The program includes informative speakers and hands-on activities to heighten interest in technology-related fields, opportunities to meet professors and students, and introductions to the nine engineering disciplines studied at U.Va. Participants will be housed in University dorms, and will be responsible for their transportation to and from U.Va., a small program fee, and for incidental/personal spending funds.

The applications for the weekend event are mailed out to the Virginia secondary schools in early January. Applications for the High School Visitation Program will be available early February. A small fee is requested to cover the activities, meals and accommodations.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding HSV, please contact the CDE at 434-924-0614 or by email to cv5d@virginia.edu.
