Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a woman engineering major to join SWE UML?

Which SWE National membership should I get?
We recommend the C2C membership. It costs $50 and includes membership throughout all of you college years plus your first year of professional membership. Additional details regarding membership fees can be found here.
Why should I join SWE National? How is it different from SWE UML?
SWE National offers additional resources, especially for networking, which SWE UML does not. Members of SWE National are added to an additional email list from which they receive invitations to SWE National events. These can include webinars about topics such as wage negotiation or finding a mentor, informational sessions with local companies, networking events with SWE professionals, and much much more. Although many of these events are open to non-members, they are often free or discounted for members. Members are also eligible to apply for over $700,000 in scholarships.
