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 work in a variety of industries and have been accepted to a wide range of engineering graduate programs.



SBC students, in collaboration with students at St. Ambrose University, designed and delivered device for Mr. Milton, a quad amputee in Brazil, that allows him to brush his teeth for the first time in 13 years. Great work, students, and many thanks to MDRT for support of this project!
