Reimagining the Possible with IEEE Foundation 

This month, in conjunction with IEEE and millions of other dedicated engineers, the IEEE Foundation celebrates National Engineers Week (E-Week) 20-26 February 2022. Founded in 1951, Engineers Week always falls on the week that encompasses George Washington’s birthday (22 February 1732), who many consider to be the United States’ first engineer, due to his survey work.

This year’s E-Week theme is ‘Reimagining the Possible,’ with a focus on engaging the next generation of innovators, the Foundation is excited to do its part to ensure a diverse and well-educated workforce.
