National Engineers Week 2017

Engineers Week is a national week organized by DiscoverE Foundation with the mission of sustaining and growing a dynamic engineering profession through outreach, education, celebration and volunteerism. Engineers Week —the only event of its kind— is a time to:

  • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
  • Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
  • Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents

More than a week-long event, Engineers Week is a year-round commitment to making a difference.

Check back often for changes and updates. For details on each individual event, see events.temple.edu.
