From February 21 through 26, the College of Engineering joined hundreds of professional organizations, businesses and educational institutions around the United States in celebrating National Engineers Week. The goal of the week is to ensure a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. On campus, academic units and student groups organized a robust calendar of events to celebrate the impact that engineering has on the world around us and the possibilities it opens for those who study it.
