The National Society of Professional Engineers initiated Engineers Week in 1951. In its developing stages, it was mostly a local and disconnected program focused only within the profession; however, after more than 60 years of growth and establishment, it has become one of the most influential and outstanding events to raise public awareness of engineers in all aspects of their societal importance.
The Capital District Chapter’s 34th Annual Engineering Week (E-Week) will soon be upon us. This celebratory two-day event will be filled with interesting seminars offering up to 10 PDHs; but the fun does not stop there. Included in the festivities will be numerous exhibitors, a high school model bridge competition and a robotics team demonstration, and networking opportunities for all in attendance. Some of the seminar topics include Climate Change and Engineering Ethics, Long Term Fuel Storage, New York Works Accelerated Bridge Program, Sustainability as Envisioned by ASCE: Maximizing Successes and Minimizing Pitfalls, and many more.
Last year, over 800 people from all around New York State attended the event. Included in the celebration were professional engineers, hopeful college students, inspired high school students, volunteers, exhibitors, speakers, and people who respect and honor the engineering profession and their contributions to society. This year you can be a part of E-Week too. We hope to see you there.
