Engineers Week 2015

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

The National Engineers Week Foundation is a formal coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies, dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young students and by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science.
