Engineer's Week

Anchorage National Engineer's Week Student Competitions at UAA

The intent of the student competitions is to heighten public National Engineer’s Week awareness of the engineering professions and to highlight the individual disciplines and fields represented. Just as importantly, it is used to encourage school age children to participate in the many educational programs and opportunities available to prepare for engineering. The National Engineer's Week Competitions are supported by the UAA School of Engineering and engineers from south central Alaska.

Again this year, Engineer's Week programs include several competitions, planned to encourage participation in Science and Engineering and challenge students at all levels. The contests will be held on the UAA Campus, Anchorage, AK.

All six competitions will be held simultaneously in a "fair" format. Students will be able to participate in all the events in any order they wish. All competitions will be concluded by 2:30 pm and the awards ceremony will be held at 3:00 pm in the UAA Campus Center Cafeteria. Students who cannot stay for the awards ceremony may pick up their awards from the UAA School of Engineering at a later time.

Recognition will be offered to all that enter.
