Engineers Week 2019

Engineers Week

Engineers Week started in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, and began as a way for members to educate the general public about the engineering profession. It is dedicated to ensuring a diverse engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.


Come celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world!

Join us for a week of engineering activities and fun! Events will be held at different times throughout the day in the Makerspace.

Come hear from our industry speakers and participate in a team competition!
