Welcome to Chattanooga
Engineers Week Website

Engineers Week 2019: February 17 - 23

NOTE: While plans for the celebration of our upcoming Chattanooga Area Engineers Week are still being developed, this site will provide information on events that have been established thus far. As new information becomes available, the site will continue to be updated by replacing the information that described the events of the previous year.

National Engineers Week is an annual event to raise public awareness about engineering and the contributions that engineers make to society. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. 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 Tuesday, February 19, 2018, followed on Thursday, February 21 with an Awards Banquet. Both 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 year.

There are two speaker programs that highlight the Engineers Week events:
    The Kick-off Luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, February 19th at the UTC University Center.

    The Awards Banquet will be held on Thursday, February 21rd at the Chattanoogan Hotel.

    Award Nominations Forms are available for submitting candidates for the various Annual Awards that will be presented at the Awards Banquet. These forms can be obtained by clicking the tab “Award Nominations Forms” at the upper right of this page.
