Engineers Week 2023

February 19 to 25, 2023

More than a week-long event, Engineers Week is a year-round commitment to making a difference. The only event of its kind—it is a time for you to:

  • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
  • Add your voice to the conversation about the need for engineers, technicians, and technologists
  • Engage students in engineering

Engage kids

Most kids don’t know any engineers or technicians. And they don’t really know what engineers do. This leads to interesting assumptions—like engineers sit in a cubicle doing math problems all day. Whether you meet with students in-person or virtually, you can spark their interest by talking to them about engineering, doing STEM activities, and sharing your story.

During Engineers Week or anytime during the year, we invite you to:

Learn more on how you can help a student build their STEM identity.

74% of educators agree: Students don’t have many chances to meet engineers. You can change that!

We love our sponsors

Celebrate

Engineers Week is a time to recognize the critical work of engineers, technicians, and technologists.

  1. Join us on social media #Eweek2023
    • Post photos of your team, engineering projects, and even selfies!
    • Share a message about engineering’s vital role in innovating solutions to global challenges, the value of engineers, or engaging students in engineering.
  2. Host an Engineers Week event.
    • It can be as simple as coffee or lunch with a few colleagues to hosting an organization wide celebration.
    • Recognize individuals to honor their achievements – in person, online, or by nominating them for an award.
    • Invite an inspiring speaker to deliver a virtual or live talk during Engineers Week.
    • Post pictures #Eweek2023
  3. Advocate for the field.
    • Ask your mayor, governor, or congressional representative to issue a proclamation recognizing the contributions of engineers.
    • Work with your corporation, society, or college communications team to post a message from leadership.
  4. Tell a friend.
    • Do your colleagues, friends, and family know about Engineers Week and what your plans are for celebrating? Tell them and let them join in the fun.
