Last week MITAGS and Maritime Conference Center were thrilled to host several student groups on site as part of the 2022 Engineers Week Program. The week long program, coordinated locally by the Engineers Club of Baltimore and Engineers Week Council, hosts hundreds of middle school and high school students from around the state of Maryland at various locations.
Throughout the week students learn about Engineering, STEM, and this year Maritime, from organizations like the American Council of Engineering Companies Maryland, American Concrete Institute, American Society of Plumbing Engineers, ASHRAE, Maryland Department of Transportation, and many others. Topics included green building technology, considering a career in engineering, plumbing system design and public health, and engineering/technology in transportation.
The week culminated with an introduction to maritime training and simulation at MITAGS-MCC’s location in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. MITAGS-MCC teamed up with Sail Baltimore to host a full day of activities that included the following sessions:
Students from Lindale Middle School, Pikesville High School & Wheaton High School attended the event.
MITAGS-MCC wishes to thank all sponsors of the 2022 Engineers Week, including our friends at Masters, Mates & Pilots (MM&P), Wartsila, McAllister Towing, Crowley and Visit Howard County.
About Engineers Week
National Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by The National Society of Professional Engineers and is celebrated annually at the time of George Washington’s Birthday. Our first president was a military engineer and a land surveyor. Like our first president, today’s engineers are problem solvers. They design, develop and oversee the design, manufacture and construction of products, machines and structures. Engineers Week is a time to recognize the contributions engineers have made to our way of life and to encourage students to pursue engineering careers to perpetuate advancements for future generations.
The Engineers Club and its affiliated Associate Societies encourage everyone to come out and support these activities now, and in years to come, at The Garrett-Jacobs Mansion, 11 West Mount Vernon Place, The Baltimore Museum of Industry, 1415 Key Highway, and, this year, MITAGS-MCC, 692 Maritime Blvd.
