Engineers’ Week is a student organization in the College of Engineering at Iowa State University. We are dedicated to supplying educational and social programming that supports student professional skill development, student/faculty engagement, and social opportunities to increase student interactions across 15 academic engineering majors. We have events offered in the fall and spring semesters, culminating with National Engineers Week held in February. We have an executive team of 18 students who coordinate planning annually, with many student volunteers aiding with annual program delivery.
This past year has been amazing! As a team, we set record attendance at nearly every event we hosted. 2023 Engineers’ Week had over 5,000 participants, and next year we predict even more students and faculty will get involved! Our annual button sales sold out the week before the event! We also hosted a new Mario Cart/Super Smash Bros tournament, game watch night, trivia night, and a club showcase during Engineers’ Week. We hosted events outside the official week as well, including our annual pi mile run, golf tournament, midnight breakfast, and company tech talks. These events would not have been possible without support. Donations go directly into paying for the hosted events.
This upcoming year, we are excited to expand our programming for College of Engineering students. Our organization is partnering with our college’s Engineering Career Services Office to help explore additional professional development programming opportunities with the goal of increasing students’ confidence in themselves and their skills. We are also partnering with Dance Marathon to create a fun new event for both of our organizations. New events will allow us to create a close-knit, inclusive environment at Iowa State University and develop students’ professional and leadership skills.
