Wentworth Institute of Technology will be the leading sponsor for the 2012 Engineers Week – New England celebration. The annual program, which promotes the engineering profession, brings together industry professionals and middle school students in a forum that showcases projects, recognizes student achievements in competitions, and builds awareness of the exciting career opportunities in engineering.
Students from several Wentworth engineering clubs, including the American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), and Society of Women Engineers (SWE), will be participating in the two-day event that includes an afternoon of engineering activities, a showcase of middle school student work, a career fair, and the annual awards luncheon. The lunch program recognizes middle school students from winning student teams for the MathCounts, Model Bridge, and Future City competitions and is attended by more than 100 engineers from the Boston area. In addition, a $5,000 college scholarship will be presented by Wentworth President Zorica Pantić to this year’s Engineers Week – New England scholarship recipient. The keynote speaker is Anna Mracek Dietrich, New England Achievement Award winner and chief operating officer and co-founder of Terrafugia.
Wentworth co-op advisor Bridget Aureli will host a session titled “Now Go Nail the Job! How to Make Career Fair Connections Pay Off” at the Career Fair event.
