National Engineers Week events set Feb. 20-26

The University of Delaware's College of Engineering will mark the 60th anniversary of National Engineers Week Feb. 20-26 with a multitude of activities designed to engage students, faculty and staff.

Scheduled events include, but are not limited to, an engineering style Texas hold 'em game, geocaching, a mousetrap powered car race, the Order of the Engineer Ring Ceremony, the space beam challenge and a business etiquette luncheon.

All Engineers Week events are open to members of the UD community unless noted.

Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Engineers Week is celebrated annually by thousands of engineers, engineering students, teachers and leaders in government and business.

The National Engineers Week consortium includes more than 100 engineering, scientific and education societies, and major corporations dedicated to increasing public awareness and appreciation of engineering.

Engineers Week 2011 is led by Raytheon Company and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.

A national program, “Connecting Educators to Engineering,” targets up to 10,000 middle school teachers with a coordinated push to train engineers to directly interact with educators, provide needed learning materials and create an online forum for educator and engineer interaction.

Contributors to the local recognition include the UD College of Engineering, engineering student organizations on campus, the Delaware section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the UD Career Services Center, the Delaware Council of Engineering Societies and the Rohm and Haas Electronic Materials, Newark, Del.
