If you are ready to become a member of the Society of Women Engineers, go to the Society homepage and fill out the form. Your dues and member grade will be based on your employment/student status and educational/professional background. For example, there are special rates/grades for K-12 teachers, unemployed or retired individuals, and engineering students. SWE membership is open to all regardless of gender, current profession, or educational attainment. Please see for complete details.

When joining, by putting down a primary address in one of the ZIP codes covered by the Heart of Iowa section, you will automatically be assigned to our section, unless you are also currently a student at a university with its own section. If your section assignment is to another section or as a Member-At-Large, and you would prefer to be affiliated with our section, you can indicate that preference by emailing
