National Engineers Week 2014
Did you know it is National Engineers Week this week, Feb 16th thru 22nd 2014?
According to the NSPE (National Society of Professional Engineers) and DiscoverE
websites National Engineers Week is observed on the third full week of February. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers make. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills.
The celebration of National Engineers Week was started in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers in conjunction with President George Washington's birthday. President Washington is considered as the nation's first engineer, notably for his survey work.
The results of the Federal Engineer of the Year Award are also announced during the week.
Please take a moment out of your week to see what events are going on in your area and make the time to help the next generation of Engineers.
