Engineers Week 2021

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) in 1951, EWeek (February 21–27, 2021) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding and interest in engineering and technology careers.

Today, EWeek is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies and more than 50 corporations and government agencies.

Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to people's quality of life, EWeek promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the U.S.

At the Volgenau School of Engineering this year, students are running the show. Student leaders have worked to create events that encompass the breadth of engineering and computing, with industry leaders speaking on panels and bringing their advice and experience to the table.
