Each year SWE holds a national conference which serves as an oppotunity for not only organizational business but professional development. As part of the conference SWE holds one of the largest engineering career fairs in the world. The career fair is a joint effort with the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
