National Engineers Week - 2017 Activities


2017 Theme: Engineers Dream Big

Every project, great or small, starts with a dream. A dream to create and build. Engineers engage their creativity and technical know-how to transform dreams into reality. They are dreamers across the professional spectrum from transportation, to agriculture, to medicine and beyond. This year DiscoverE encourages you to dream and to Dream Big!

The 2017 DiscoverE Co-Chairs leading the National Engineers Week 2017 include the DiscoverE Leadership Council* and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). To learn more about other national DiscoverE programs click here.
