National Engineers Week
The 66th anniversary of National Engineers Week is February 19–25. This event is designed to raise awareness of all the ways engineering contributes to our daily lives and foster interest in future generations of engineers. “Engineers Dream Big” is the 2017 theme, and it reminds participants that every project begins with a dream.
