E-Week Festivities Continue Around Campus

In Engineering Education, News

E-Week, the largest student-run annual event in the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, began on February 15 and will continue until February 25.

Each year, E-Week plans over a week’s worth of activities for students and community members to engage in. This year, the theme is “Spark Imagination.” In her message to the students about E-Week, executive director Samantha Soto said the theme was chosen to “remind us that even the smallest of sparks can burst into the most brilliant of flames.”

“Every year we gather not only in a celebration along with National Engineers’ Week, but also to recognize the growth of our college and impact on the University of Florida community,” said Michael Silberling, Benton Engineering Council president, in his E-Week message.

Students are encouraged to attend any of the events happening this week.

Some highlights include: a Spring Robotics Fair for organizations and clubs to showcase their projects, the Engineering Leadership Forum where engineers will speak on behalf of their diverse experiences in the professional world, and a closing ceremony that will officially conclude E-Week with speeches, awards and a dinner.
