Are you the New Face of Engineering? Apply Now!|
The New Faces of Engineering program highlights the vitality, diversity and rich contributions of engineers 30 or younger. It is sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation, a coalition of engineering societies, major corporations and government agencies.
The campaign is designed to enhance and improve the image of engineering by:
* Putting faces to what has often been referred to as “the stealth profession”.
* Showing a group of young, diverse and talented engineers, thereby portraying engineering as an exciting profession open to everyone.
* Providing both stimulation and incentive for college engineering students to explore the variety of career options available to them with their engineering degrees, as well as encouraging high school students to study engineering in college.
* Helping engineering students understand they are part of a global profession.
* Engineers 30 or younger as of 31 December 2010 are the focus of the program.
* Nominees must have a degree in engineering from a recognized U.S. college or university, or from an equivalent international educational institution. Degrees in engineering technology, science, computer science, and similar disciplines do not qualify; a degree in computer engineering is acceptable.
* Nominees must be a member in good standing of a sponsoring Engineers Week (EWeek) partner.
* Self-nominations are not allowed.
Nominations are made only through the designated contact at the Engineers Week Sponsoring Societies and government agency partners. All nominees must submit their applications to these societies. As of August 1, 2010, the Engineers Week partners are:
