About Engineers Week

Engineers invent things that amaze us in the moment. Think jaw-dropping space launch. But many of us take for granted much in this engineered world that is everyday amazing, like clean drinking water at the turn of a faucet.

During Engineers Week we celebrate engineers and how they improve our lives. The need for the next generation of practical inventors and innovators continues. Who will step up?

The 2019 DiscoverE Co-Chairs leading the National Engineers Week 2019 include the DiscoverE Leadership Council* and the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying® (NCEES). To learn more about other national DiscoverE programs click here.
