The National Engineers’ Week Foundation, a formal coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies, is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young students and by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science.
Engineers’ Week also raises public understanding and appreciation of engineers' contributions to society.
Founded in 1951, it is among the oldest of America's professional outreach efforts. Co-chairs for 2012 are Battelle and ASME. For more information, visit www.eweek.org.
