It's National Engineers Week 02/19/2008 | From buildings to manufacturing and transportation, engineers have been behind many modern-day marvels This National Engineers Week, remember: Engineers don't just shape our buildings and infrastructure - they help shape our world. The Atlanta-based American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is a partner in this week's National Engineers Week program (Feb. 17 through 23), a celebration of the contributions that engineering makes to our society. The program encourages engineering as a career path among young students by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science. For specific information about the program, please visit (www.EWeek.org). "National Engineers Week showcases how our profession engineers the world we live in," says ASHRAE President Kent Peterson. "From buildings to manufacturing and transportation, engineers have been behind so many modern-day marvels. Mankind also faces many engineering challenges today and in the future on how to improve sustainable life on earth." Several events will take place in conjunction with National Engineers Week, including Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (Feb. 21) and the Future City Competition. Now in its 16th year, the competition attracted 30,000 middle-school students this year from a record-breaking 1,111 schools in 40 regions across America to work with teachers and volunteer engineers to envision the future in large, tabletop models of cities of tomorrow.
