February 22nd – March 1st, 2021
Engineers’ Week at the University of Florida is a one-week celebration, hosted by the Benton Engineering Council through UF’s College of Engineering, that aims to recognize engineers’ contribution to modern social development through a series of fun, interactive, and informative events. While Engineers’ Week aims to celebrate engineers, the events also underscore the relationship between engineering and all other fields of study, from fine arts and journalism, to liberal arts and social sciences.
The events are highly anticipated and heavily attended by students at the university, as well as those at elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the state. While Engineers’ Week at the University of Florida aims to celebrate innovation, it highlights Gator Engineering through communicative and interdisciplinary nature that serves as the driving force for social progress through modern engineering.
