February 19-25 is Engineers Week in 2017. This is an exciting time for
engineers who celebrate the positive contributions made to society.
Engineers use their imagination and analytical skills to invent,
design, and build things that matter. They are team players with
independent minds who turn ideas into reality. Many become licensed
professional engineers in order to better protect the health, safety,
and welfare of the public. By dreaming up creative and practical
solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time.
Everything around us and that we use every day has been engineered in
some way, yet we may not see the engineers behind the scenes or know
much about engineering. The engineering field is as varied as engineers
themselves. Engineers can design and build superstructures or delicate
medical instruments and are exploring for energy and new worlds in
space. They are designing environmental controls, directing global
companies and responsible for tomorrows cars and computers. Who knows
where the next great challenges will be?
This coming year, in a continuing effort
to make this a valley-wide
event, the Engineer's Week Greater Phoenix Area activities are being
organized by a committee of professional engineering and science
organizations throughout the area. We are please to bring you these
exciting events for eWeek (click here for more details):
