National Engineers Week is big deal at the School of Engineering. Students get to both celebrate and show off what makes their field of study so special. First celebrated in 1951, National Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. At Rutgers, EWeek is a chance to come together as a community with fun events and some friendly competition. Some highlights of the week:
