Each year, the Case Engineering Council (CEC) coordinates Case Western Reserve University’s Engineers Week (E-Week) to celebrate and raise public understanding and appreciation of engineers’ contributions to society. Students are able to participate in friendly competition, social events, seminars with excellent speakers and an E-Week Reception.

This year's event is scheduled for February 19-27, with the theme, "A single action can cause a chain reaction," will feature our Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department while highlighting the social and technological impacts that can be made through STEM. 

Over the course of the week-long event, students have the opportunity to bond through friendly competitions and social events such as light bulb drops and trivia nights. The week traditionally closes with a guest speaker and Gudi Award presentation at the E-Week Reception.
