Ever wondered who created those incredible Disney World rides? The
answer is /ENGINEERS/. Engineers not only problem-solve to find
better and less expensive ways to use the forces of nature; but they
also use engineering technology to serve the needs of humanity.
Whether providing fresh water to a village in a remote region, or
designing artificial body parts to improve a disabled person's life,
engineers dramatically improve the quality of life daily around the
world. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE ENGINEERS WEEK
