The New York State Society of Professional Engineers (NYSSPE) recently participated in the 36th Annual Capital District E-week celebration.  The NYSSPE is one of more than 10 Professional Associations that work together to make this event happen. The event this year was again a huge success.  Over 830 engineering professionals from across the state attended the event!  There were 65 continuing education courses offered for engineers during the event as well as a model bridge competition for high school students, 42 exhibitors and the Capital District’s Future City winners and Robotics team.   Jason Gough News Channel 13 was the keynote speaker at Thursday’s lunch, where he spoke to attendees and students about the importance of engineering.

Once again, the Capital District E-Week Committee reached out to the younger community for an opportunity to create a logo for next year’s event.  This competition served to find a logo for the February 2017 event and was limited to students, 18 years of age and younger.  Below is the 2017 logo winner.
