The Maine Engineering Promotional Council (MEPC) was founded to promote National Engineers Week in Maine, and the engineering profession and the contributions of engineers to their communities and to society as a whole.
Held typically the last week in February, National Engineers Week was initiated to publicly promote the work and contributions of our nation's engineers. During this week, engineering professionals have a unique opportunity to increase public awareness of the positive contributions engineers make to their communities, to this nation and to the world. National Engineers Week has grown to involve tens of thousands of engineers in a variety of community outreach activities, including technology exhibits and presentations of student scholarships.
In Maine, Engineers Week has been celebrated through an annual Conference, where engineers, educators, and students have gathered for hands-on activities and workshops. For Maine Engineers Week, the Planning Committees decided to take a new approach to their promotional strategy. Since the objective of Engineers Week is to promote the engineering profession, the Engineers Week Planning Committee and the Maine Engineering Promotion Council are working to increase the visibility of engineering in Maine through a dynamic, aggressive and effective publicity campaign.
