Official 2019 Theme: Engineers: Invent Amazing
“Engineers invent things that amaze us in the moment. Think jaw-dropping space launch. But many of us take for granted much in this engineered world that is everyday amazing, like clean drinking water at the turn of a faucet.
During Engineers Week we celebrate engineers and how they improve our lives. The need for the next generation of practical inventors and innovators continues. Who will step up?”
“Founded by NSPE in 1951, National Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
