On October 21-25th, Cal Poly SWE’s Collegiate Section sent 21 members to the SWE National Conference in Nashville, Tennessee!
Our members had the opportunity to connect with like-minded SWE members both professional and collegiate, network with employers at the career fair, be inspired by keynote speakers, celebrate all things engineering, and experience the sights and sounds of Nashville!
At Celebrate SWE, Cal Poly placed first for the Team Tech competition and was awarded Boeing Multicultural award and Outstanding Collegiate Section Gold award.
We started planning this trip in the spring by advertising the Annual Conference and sending out applications to our members. Our Executive Board reviewed these applications and based their selection on the applicant’s involvement in SWE as well as their passion and reason to attend. Over summer, the logistics were planned which included booking the flights, reserving the hotel rooms, creating our attendee contracts, organizing the transportation and carpools, and sending out Academic Absence Memos to professors.
This conference was very successful in inspiring Cal Poly SWE members to “Reach Out to Reach Up!” It also was a great time to bond with our section! We look forward to attending SWE Regionals in Seattle, Washington next!
