Hundreds of students will participate in demonstrations and competitions from several of the on-campus engineering and technology clubs.

Students will also get to tour campus labs and get exposure to the kind of research and jobs available to graduates in the different fields of engineering and technology.
The purpose of National Engineers Week is to increase appreciation for math, science and technology and to celebrate the contributions engineers make in the world.
