FAMU-FSU College of Engineering to celebrate National Engineers Week

FAMU FSU college of engineering

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering has organized a host of events in commemoration of National Engineers Week — a time where we recognize how the skills, innovation and creativity of engineers have fueled the march of human progress.

National Engineers Week will take place from Sunday, Feb. 19 through Saturday, Feb. 25. All events are free and open to the public.

Since its institution in 1997, National Engineers Week has provided an opportunity for FAMU-FSU engineering students, faculty and staff to showcase their pursuits and forge lasting bonds with the local community.

This year’s events invite visitors to consider the vital work being done by engineers in Tallahassee and around the world. Planned events and presentations include an engineering-themed game day coordinated by the Society of Petroleum Engineers, a College of Engineering mixer at local hotspot Madison Social and a tech talk by Northrop Grumman Chief Technology Officer Patrick M. Antkowiak.

With the theme “engineers make wonders happen,” the events of this year’s National Engineers Week will underscore the notion that some of our world’s most pressing challenges can be addressed by the enterprising work of engineers.

The events kick off with Antkowiak’s tech talk. The talk will take place at 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 20, at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, Room A-317, 2525 Pottsdamer St.
