We are cordially invited to "Inspire Wonder" and celebrate Engineers Week (E-Week) during the annual E-Week San Diego Awards Banquet. This year's keynote is "Back to the Future: The Wonder of Engineering" by Timothy Wentz. The celebration will start with a networking event and the recognition of outstanding engineering achievements within the community. All engineering organizations, engineers, and aspiring students are welcome to participate.
San Diego is host to many Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) outreach events for youth throughout the year. IEEE is its largest technical professional organization. Join the San Diego Engineering Societies that comprise the SDCEC and find out more about what we are doing within the community.
-Engineers Week- E-week is celebrated in the fourth week of February aligning with George Washington's birthday; our nation's first president was a military engineer and land surveyor. E-Week (formally National Engineer's Week (NEW)) was founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) to increase public awareness and appreciation of the engineering profession. Today, EWeek is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. E-Week activities help celebrate and raise public awareness of the contributions engineers make to build a better world in which to live and play. -San Diego County Engineering Council- San Diego County Engineering Council (SDCEC) works in conjunction with the local engineering societies to coordinate activities and lead the EWSD. To learn more about the SDCEC and join their Outreach Advocacy team to enhance the cross-society and public E-offering experience. www.new-sandiego.org
