Welcome to Chattanooga Engineers Week

Engineers Week 2024 will run from February 18 to 24. This year’s theme — Welcome to the Future — recognizes how engineers play a vital role in innovating solutions to global challenges that impact future generations. By working together to develop new technologies, products and opportunities, engineers create new possibilities that make the world a better place. This Engineers Week we hope that you’ll take a moment to recognize and celebrate the work of engineers and engage students in engineering. Eweek, in particular, it provides a time to:

  • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
  • Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
  • Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents

Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). It is among the oldest of America’s professional engineering outreach efforts.
“In concert with more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies, the Chattanooga Area of Tennessee officially opens Engineers Week with a Kick-off Luncheon on on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at the UTC University Center. It will be followed by an Awards Banquet. Both events are open to the public.

While “Engineers Week” suggests only a week-long event, it has, in fact, become a year-round commitment to making a difference in this area. For example, Manufacturers Day was held in October of last year and the Regional Science Fair will bring the “week” to a close in March of this coming year, 2023.
