2016 marks the 65th year for the national celebration
The University of Delaware (UD), College of Engineering (COE) will participate in the 2016 National Engineers Week, February 21 through February 27. 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.
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, education 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.
Leading the National Engineers Week 2016 effort are The Boeing Company, the American Institute for Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA), and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International. To learn more about other national programs click http://www.discovere.org/our-programs/engineers-week.
