This event is part of a series for Engineers Week (February 21-27). This is a time to recognize the important contributions of engineers and energize the next generation of innovators.
Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
Engineers impact the world by solving some of the most daunting global challenges we face. In fact, there are examples of the critical work of engineers in the news everyday—from helping to create a world safe from pandemics to addressing climate change to thwarting cyber-attacks to building safer cities and buildings that weather natural disasters, and so much more.
We are excited to announce a variety of special programs that we have designed to engage the engineers of today and tomorrow. There is something for everyone!
