University of Florida Holds 73rd Engineers’ Week

UF Engineers' Week 2018

Get ready to “Ignite Your Creativity” with Engineers’ Week (E-Week) at the University of Florida from Feb. 19 to March 1.

E-Week at UF is a two-week celebration, hosted by the Benton Engineering Council through the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, that celebrates engineers’ contribution to modern social development through a series of fun, interactive, and informative events. This year’s event comes with the slogan “Ignite Your Creativity,” pushing students to take on engineering in their own unique perspectives.

“E-Week is a wonderful event that we are happy to put on year after year,” said Curtis Taylor, associate dean of student affairs at Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering. “We encourage engineering students to come and not only build themselves professionally, but also celebrate their achievements in society.”

E-Week starts on Feb. 19 with an E-Talk at the Reitz Union Auditorium and runs through Closing Ceremonies on March 1. Attendees can expect club presentations, activities with faculty, and interactive events documenting the different branches of engineering.

One of the biggest events is the Engineering Festival, or E-Fest, which takes place Feb. 24. E-Fest consists of a free concert on Flavet Field put on by local musicians, carnival games and food. It is free and open to all majors.

Younger generations of engineers should look to attend the Engineering and Science fair from Feb. 26-27 in the Reitz Union. This event is open to students from schools all over Florida and will display the newest and coolest discoveries to inspire and delight young engineering minds.

Each UF engineering club will be hosting various events throughout the week. Those who attend these events can expect professional networking activities, mock-interviews, soft skills and more.
