Engineers . . . - Are creative and imaginative - Like collaborating with others - Are curious and persistent - Want to make a difference - Like solving problems or improving processes The celebration of National Engineers Week was started in 1951. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers make. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. Engineers are changing the world all of the time. They dream up creative, practical solutions and work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design, and create things that matter and make our world a better place!
