About the event
Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers as an annual event to raise public awareness of engineers and the work they do. It is usually celebrated at the time of George Washington's birthday. Our nation's first President was a military engineer and land surveyor. Since 1951, beginning with President Truman, U.S. Presidents have sent special messages of appreciation to the engineering profession in recognition of the week.
Originally, National Engineers Week included a few scattered government proclamations, dinners, and speeches. It has since grown to involve tens of thousands of engineers in a variety of community outreach activities, such as technology and education exhibits at shopping malls, to presentations of student scholarships. Currently there are hundreds of engineering societies, corporations and businesses, government agencies, and universities nationwide that participate.
