With our Member of the Month program, Dallas SWE seeks to recognize some of our non-officer members whose technical contributions, leadership accomplishments, or SWE volunteer service are particularly noteworthy. If you would like to nominate a Dallas SWE member for his/her contributions, please email us.

Our September Member of the Month is Shannon Cruise! Shannon is a Facilities Engineer for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems.  She develops tactical space plans across approximately two million square feet over several buildings and also works as a project manager on a multi-functional team.  She started with Raytheon in 2012 after relocating from Cleveland, Ohio.

Before moving to Dallas, Shannon worked for a small geotechnical company, testing concrete, soils, and foundations after receiving her degree in Construction Engineering Technology from the University of Toledo.  While at UT, she was a member of Phi Sigma Rho, a sorority for women in engineering and engineering technology.

Shannon joined SWE shortly after moving to Dallas in 2012 and was just recently appointed chair of the Membership Committee.  She is very proud to serve SWE and hopes to continue to serve such a great organization in the future.

“I have gotten a lot out of SWE and have built some wonderful friendships since joining.  I am hoping to give back what I have received both from SWE and from my engineering career.  SWE has helped me to push myself harder as well as open doors for more discussion on solving issues for women in engineering.”
