2015 marks the 64th year for the national celebration
The University of Delaware (UD), College of Engineering (COE) will participate in the 2015 National Engineers Week, February 22 through February 28. 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 2015 effort are Shell Oil Company and the American Society of Agriculture & Biological Engineers (ASBAE). To learn more about other national programs click http://www.discovere.org/our-programs/engineers-week.
