Julius talks about how NSBE has helped him in his career and what it means to be culturally responsible.
News and Events
In this episode of The Engineering Career Coach Podcast, we celebrate National Engineers Week by telling you what National Engineers Week is, and why it is important. We also highlight some interesting news stories about the engineering license and share some of the responses we received from our listeners about a question we asked on social media, “What is one thing about becoming an engineer that surprised you or that you didn’t expect?”
In the United States, National Engineers Week is always the week in February that encompasses George Washington’s actual birthday, February 22. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers make. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. ~ Wikipedia
