How to Sign up as SWE National Member

Why Join National SWE?
Registering as a national SWE member will broaden and enrich your SWE experience! As a registered national SWE member at MIT, you gain access to members-only events including networking events, career development opportunities, social events, personal development events, and more. It is also important to join SWE as a national member because only then can you be recognized as a SWE member by MIT, SWE, and outside employers. Additionally, only registered national SWE members can run for SWE Board and Exec positions within MIT SWE. National SWE also offers additional benefits to members that can be found on the national SWE website.
