National Engineers Week

Feb. 17-23

Come celebrate the return of another S&T tradition.

Engineers Week is part of a national effort to celebrate how engineers make a difference in the world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers and most importantly, to bring engineering to life.

A week full of networking and engagement

In addition to Career Fair activities, the College of Engineering and Computing will host a number of employer-student mixers. Connect with alumni and employers, learn more about industry and discuss your career aspirations.

Already an engineer? Great. Interested in learning more about engineering, and its real-world impact? Even better.
