Engineers Week February 21 - 27

Engineers Week, founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers – NSPE, promotes developing a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce. During Engineers Week, many organizations celebrate engineers’ impacts on the world and emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills.

As we know, all of us need to encourage the younger generation to consider a career in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math. Lidar News has started a Linked in group for Younger Geospatial Professionals to continue to advance their technical careers. The group welcomes all, as a place for the learning, mentoring and career building. Please help us pass the word about this important resource.

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) provides the positioning framework for numerous engineering, scientific, and construction projects — including roads, dams, airports and ports, and more. This framework — the National Spatial Reference System — supports engineers and underpins these various engineering projects.

NGS, partnering with The COMET Program, has developed a series of self-paced lessons on geodetic and remote-sensing topics. Create a free COMET user account to access hundreds of training resources on their website.

NGS also features an online video library of short videos about topics related to geodesy and mapping. View the full suite of online lessons and our online video library; share these resources with students, educators, and your professional networks as we celebrate Engineers Week this year.
