The Margaret Jones Wyllie ’45 Engineering Program

Engineers are changing the world.
We design and create practical solutions, work with inspiring people, and invent and  build things that improve people’s lives.
The Sweet Briar College engineering community provides a challenging and supportive environment in which women become engineers and leaders who make a difference.  Sweet Briar engineering graduates now work in a variety of industries and have been accepted to a wide range of engineering graduate programs.
