Engineers Week was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951. In 2023, it takes place on February 19 through February 25, 2023. The week is dedicated to ensuring a bright future for the engineering workforce by increasing interest in engineering and an understanding of what goes on in technology careers.
These days, Engineers Week is a coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. They come together to raise public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to our quality of life.
Engineers Week promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy. The goal is to motivate youth, to pursue engineering careers. Each year, Engineers Week reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the US.
The National Society of Professional Engineers has a site devoted to engineering events. They even feature information on Girl Day on February 23, when you’re supposed to introduce a girl to engineering.
