The University of Florida held their 2019 E-Week events this past February. This event is a fun, week-long celebration that aims to recognize engineers' contribution to modern society through a series of interactive and informative events. Moreover, E-Week underscores the relationship between engineering and all other fields of study, from fine arts and journalism to liberal arts and social sciences. At UF, the Benton Engineering Council and various other student organizations within the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering host these events that also reach the local community such as E-Fair, a STEM focused science fair.
The Engineers' Week Planning Committee works diligently to put on this week-long event and concluded the week with their Closing Ceremonies at the Reitz Union. They invited Gmuer Engineering’s President, Christopher Gmuer, PE to come speak and offer a unique perspective on his experiences as an engineer and a business owner. The E-Week Closing Ceremonies are attended by the Dean of Engineering, Dr. Cammy Abernathy, event sponsors, E-Week Committee members, and the many organizations that helped make all the events possible. The message of Christopher’s presentation was “Workflow, Hustle, & Culture”.
