Engineers Week (E-Week) is a national, annual celebration of the vital contributions that engineers make to our world.

This year’s theme “Welcome to the Future” is about celebrating today’s achievements and paving the way for a brighter and more diverse future in engineering. 

The events of the week showcase how engineering is at the forefront of innovation and is instrumental in designing and creating the solutions that are shaping the world of tomorrow. From the development of the internet and smartphones to space exploration and renewable energy solutions, engineers have been at the forefront of progress, making our lives more efficient, comfortable, and connected. Through their creativity, expertise, and dedication, engineering teams are addressing global challenges, driving technological advancements, and making a positive impact on society’s future.

Aerospace and Aviation 

Network with JHU alumni and learn about the engineering behind the Dragonfly New Frontiers mission to Titan.

Flying Drones… on the moon… of Saturn.

So how would you operate a drone? On another celestial body? In a denser atmosphere and no external power source? Plus, you think your internet lag is bad?

Join us as we kick-off Engineering Week and hear a lecture from Kenneth Hibbard, WSE ’09, Project Systems Engineer for the Dragonfly New Frontiers mission to Titan at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. 

Ken will discuss some of the technical challenges of flying at drone on Saturn’s moon, Titan, and sampling multiple geological locations. This revolutionary mission concept includes the capability to explore diverse locations to characterize the habitability of Titan’s environment, to investigate how far prebiotic chemistry has progressed, and even to search for chemical signatures that could indicate water-based and/or hydrocarbon-based life.

WSE’s 14th Annual Speed Networking Night 

The Whiting School of Engineering invites you to attend the 14th annual Speed Networking Night. During this event, students will meet with different alumni as they rotate through a series of seven-minute, in-person, one-on-one, speed-networking sessions. These sessions offer students the opportunity to practice their “elevator pitch” and receive feedback on how to improve and make the best possible first impression.

Shriver Hall Clipper Room/Lobby | 6:30 p.m.

Bloomberg BPuzzled

Bpuzzled is a 3-hour long competition where teams use problem solving, creative thinking, and teamwork to solve challenging and intricate puzzles that are logical in nature, similar to those found in escape rooms. Each puzzle is themed to a location of a Bloomberg office from around the world, and the winners get a chance to compete in the Global Finals and be flown out to NYC to do so.

FastForward U Building | 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Tau Beta Pi Trivia Night

TBP is hosting an Engineering-based trivia night for all WSE students!

About Tau Beta Pi: Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation’s second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.

There are now active collegiate chapters at 255 US colleges and universities, 48 active alumni chapters in 16 districts across the country, and a total initiated membership of 636,690.

Maryland Hall 110 | 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
