ASHRAE is among those lauding the contributions of engineers Feb. 20-26 in observation of National Engineers Week.

The observance recognizes the importance of engineering to daily life around the world.

“National Engineers Week showcases how our profession engineers the world in which we live,” said Lynn G. Bellenger, president of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers. “From buildings to manufacturing and transportation, engineers have been behind many modern-day marvels. ASHRAE is proud to be lead sponsor in this program and celebration.”

Events scheduled to be held in conjunction with the occasion include Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day Feb. 24 and the Future City Competition. ASHRAE Treasurer Tom Watson will serve as a judge for the Best Indoor Environment and Most Sustainable Building awards.
