What is engineering week?
EW2011 is organised to introduce and promote the engineering profession to the general public and the contribution of Engineers in Scientific and Technology Development.
A one-week programme will be arranged to promote engineering actively and covering all aspects; the challenges, professionalism, the exciting working environment and the wide career options available to engineers. Society must be made to understand and appreciate the versatility of the engineering profession in providing them with a high standard of living. The target groups for these strategies should be the organisations, IEM members, universities and schools.
