It’s National Engineers Week, a good chance to really think about how much of our world is shaped by engineers and the impact they have on society. National Engineers Week is always the week in February which encompasses George Washington’s birthday, February 22. More than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies celebrate National Engineers Week annually.
During National Engineers Week we like to direct our attention to the contributions to society that engineers make. It is also a relevant time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. Please pass on the message if you are a teacher or in a field where you could demonstrate the positive impact that engineers have on our society on a day to day basis. A huge thank you to all our civil engineers for their hard work!
