Engineers Week

February 4-8, 2019

Engineers Week (EWeek) is a tradition originating at Mizzou in 1903. Since 1951 it has been adopted by the National Society of Professional Engineers typically coordinating with George Washington's birthday who is considered US's first engineer. The purpose is to publicize the need for engineers and celebrate their impact.​
