Celebrating National Engineers Week 2019, Feb. 17-23
Engineers have been celebrating National Engineers Week since 1951.
The week’s timing — Feb. 17-23 this year — is no accident. It coincides with George Washington’s birthday, which falls on Feb. 18. Washington, of course, was the nation’s first president. But he also is considered the nation’s first engineer, thanks to his agricultural, military, engineering and land-surveying skills.
We hope you come away with a fresh view of a field whose handiwork affects us all in one way or another.
