ECS Week

February 15-22, 2018


The College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) celebrates ECS Week through a variety of events highlighting the important contributions in these academic and professional fields.  Though ECS Week is largely influenced by the nationally recognized Engineers Week, annually taking place in the same week of George Washington’s birthday, in ECS we also recognize the equally important contributions made in computer science.  Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Engineers Week highlights the positive contributions engineers offer to society and emphasizes the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. 

We invite engineers, computer scientists, students, faculty, staff, educators, and leaders to join in this celebration!
