The Most Wonderful Time of the Year: UD Engineers Week 2020

By Tayte Miller, communication intern

Mark your calendars! It’s the most wonderful time of the year: The University of Dayton Engineers Week is quickly approaching. Engineers Week brings the entire UD community together to celebrate engineering. Students, faculty, staff and families are invited to attend events throughout the week of Feb. 15-22.

Engineers Week is a longtime tradition at UD and is the School of Engineering’s largest event of the year. Throughout the week, events and competitions are hosted by the School of Engineering faculty, staff, students and student organizations such as ETHOS Club and Phi Sigma Rho.

The celebration provides students an opportunity to apply what they have learned throughout the year and participate in engineering demonstrations of various disciplines. Through events such as the Calculator Toss and ETHOS Blitz, a competition where engineers design and build sustainable technology, students see engineering in a new light.

“Engineers Week is a week that really brings together engineers from all areas of study,” said Ben Holtzmann, senior chemical engineering major. “It’s neat to see everyone come together and learn from one another.”

Earlier this year, Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) sponsored a T-shirt design contest, which produced the design for this year’s Engineers Week T-shirt giveaway. Engineers Week promotes KEEN’s three C’s: Have a deep curiosity about the world, make connections that spur innovation, and create value for society, your organization and yourself. The T-shirts are a beloved part of Engineers Week and can be seen around campus for years to come.

This year, events include guest speaker, Whit Alexander, co-founder of smash-hit games company, Cranium; engineering themed Jeopardy; two path point events; a formal for the School of Engineering; swag giveaways and much more. Make sure to check out this year’s calendar of events to make sure you do not miss anything!
