On a campus awash in tradition, the College of Engineering and Computing at Missouri S&T is joining a national celebration of the engineering profession.
Other events include a research symposium featuring College of Engineering and Computing faculty and a showcase of hands-on engineering applications hosted by student chapters of professional engineering organizations such as the National Society of Black Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
“Engineers Week is about celebrating the impact of engineers on everyday life while elevating the public conversation about the value of our profession,” says Dr. Richard Wlezien, vice provost and dean of engineering and computing at Missouri S&T. “And as is often the case here, our students will be helping to lead that discussion.”
Among the scheduled attendees at the Feb. 23 Spotlight on Engineering are high school students from St. Louis and Kansas City participating in a two-day pre-college workshop for prospective students hosted by the National Society of Black Engineers.
