Engineer's Roundtable

What is the Engineer's Roundtable?

Engineers Week is traditionally the week in February that encompasses George Washington's actual birthday (February 22), although some adjustments are occasionally necessary. For more on this, see our old press release.

Based in Omaha, Nebraska, the Engineer's Roundtable focuses on being a central location for people in and around Omaha to find out where to go for any type of engineering activity. We maintain current records of contacts for engineering-associated organizations.

The Engineer's Roundtable is a group that formed through various organizations and clubs. One person from each of the local engineering-related organizations or clubs sits on the Roundtable and helps plan events for E-Week, which occurs annually in February.

The representative from each organization is also responsible for taking back the information planned on the Roundtable to share with their own membership so we can get enough volunteers or attendees for the events that we plan. We hold open-house events at local high schools to educate kids on engineering, proclamation signings with local mayors, and mall displays to educate the general public on engineering. We also plan an annual banquet so that local professionals can mingle with those who they may not normally get to interact with (i.e. other engineering disciplines).

Any engineering-, science-, or technology- related organization is welcome to join in and become a part of what we do. We do not always know what groups are in town so when we learn of one, we make an effort to invite them.

E-week is sponsored nationally by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), a sponsor company and one of the participating organizations (on a rotating basis). Please see eweek.org for more information on a national level.

Upcoming E-week dates:
2017 February 19–25
