Engineers Week 2008

February, 2008

Engineers Week 2008, celebrated February 17-23, highlights the contributions engineers make to society. The Eweek coalition comprises more than 75 engineering, professional, and technical societies and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers, the coalition is dedicated to sustaining and growing a dynamic engineering profession by ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce, increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young students, and promoting pre-college literacy in math and science. Among the oldest of America’s professional outreach efforts, Engineers Week also raises public understanding and appreciation of engineering contributions to society through year-round innovative programming and celebration. Visit www.eweek.org for more information on programs including:
Engineers Week Diversity Council – A new coalition of businesses, professional societies, and academic and advocacy organizations committed to increasing underrepresented minorities in engineering. Founded in October 2007, the Council is headed by the National Engineers Week Foundation, IBM, and 13 Founding Partner organizations.
