National Engineers Week at Rutgers

Rutgers School of Engineering students celebrated National Engineers Week (February 22-28, 2015) with everything from a NERD Olpympics competition that included a chicken wing eating contest, to partnering with Verizon to expose middle school kids to engineering and a spirited cardboard canoe competition. Other events included SoE students sharing their internship experiences with other students and alumni and a discussion on health care innovation with returning alumnus Gene Saraganese ENG'79, CEO of Imaging System at Philips Health.

It was a great week showcasing the many sides of engineering, the opportunities available to students, and how engineering makes the world a better place to live.
