Share this story

As National Engineers Week is February 16 – 22, City of Rowlett Engineers were recognized by proclamation at last night’s City Council Meeting. Engineers Week was created in honor of President George Washington’s contributions to engineering as a military engineer and land surveyor. Engineers Week, which is the product of a formal coalition of more than 75 engineering, professional, and technical societies and more than 50 corporations and government agencies, was founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers.

The program 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 through the sponsorship of national programs and activities. These programs and activities include the following:

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (February 20)
Global Marathon For, By, and About Women in Engineering & Technology (March 11 – April 8, 2020)
New Faces in Engineering
Engineer Your Life
Future City Competition
Dream Big
