National Event Inspires Future Engineers

Engineers Week is coming February 19-25. The annual event is aimed at celebrating how engineers make a difference in the world, increasing public dialogue about the need for engineers and bringing engineering to life for kids, educators and parents. The theme of EWeek 2017 is “Engineers Dream Big.”

Dozens of events are scheduled all over the country, including the premiere of the new film Dream Big: Engineering Our World. The movie brings today’s greatest engineering marvels, like the steel-framed Transbay Transit Center and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to IMAX theaters and science centers across the country. Produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and presented by Bechtel Corporation, the film celebrates the impact engineering has on shaping our world.

Now in its 66th year, EWeek is organized by DiscoverE (formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation), whose mission is to sustain and grow a dynamic engineering profession through outreach, education, celebration and volunteerism. For more information on EWeek and other DiscoverE programs, visit
