Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by NSPE with the goal of calling attention to the contributions that engineers make to society. That goal now includes outreach to young students and a call to engage, educate, and inspire more children and young adults to consider a career in engineering.
Engineers are always at work creating new possibilities. From green buildings to fuel-efficient cars and life-saving vaccines, professional engineers—and the entire engineering team— work together to develop new technologies, products, and opportunities to improve our quality of life. By participating in Engineers Week, you bring attention to the need for licensed professional engineers, and certified technicians and technologists. Let’s engage students in the field that is our passion, and inspire the next generation by celebrating all the ways engineers turn dreams into reality.
Engineers Week is more than a week-long event; it is a year-round commitment to making a difference. Join us and your engineering peers from around the world as we celebrate our profession, our dedication to confronting challenges with creative solutions, and our understanding that when we work together, nothing is impossible.
2022 Theme: Reimagining the Possible
NSPE has some great ideas for how you can get involved and celebrate!
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 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.
