National Engineers Week
2013 marks the 62nd year for the national celebration
The University of Delaware (UD), College of Engineering (COE) is participating in the 2013 National Engineers Week, February 17-23, 2013.
Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Engineers Week is an annual celebration of the positive contributions engineers make to society. It is celebrated annually by thousands of engineers, engineering students, teachers and leaders in government and business.
Leading the National Engineers Week 2013 effort are Lockheed Martin and the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).
Dale Jans, P.E., NCEES Chair, EWeek 2013, announced this year’s theme, "Celebrate Awesome" as "a call to celebrate the people in the profession and all they do."
The National Engineers Week consortium includes more than 100 engineering, scientific and education societies and major corporations committed to preparing the next generation of engineering talent by helping to remove the social, educational and economic barriers that deter young students from pursuing careers in STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The national program also provides programs, toolkits and a variety of resources for K-12 educators, as well as college and licensed professionals. Learn more about National EWeek
