A week-long celebration of engineering and technology that features potential job and internship opportunities will unfold at Wright State University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science.

The college will mark Engineers Week on Feb. 21–25 at the Russ Engineering Center.

During the week, students will have the opportunity to explore internships and careers with employers that include the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, Crown Equipment, Nidec Minster and Avery Dennison.

The week will also feature a carnival with tables and games hosted by engineering student organizations, engineering departments and the University Center for International Education.

“Engineering Week at Wright State is an opportunity to celebrate our students throughout the week and engage our students outside of the classroom,” said Brian Rigling, Ph.D., dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, Engineers Week is aimed at ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
