- Help the public understand the value of engineers?
- Celebrate engineering technology and innovation?
- Cultivate interest in math, science and engineering among the nation’s
youth – tomorrow’s work force?
- Support engineering student scholarships?
Over the past 10 years, Delaware Valley Engineers Week (DVEW) has awarded almost $85,000 in scholarships to deserving area engineering students, with a goal to continue increasing the scholarship amounts as we’ve been able to do over the past decade.
Since 1998, DVEW has collaborated with the Philadelphia Business Journal on an Engineers Week Supplement that reaches thousands of regional business leaders.This supplement highlights the secondary school, collegiate, and professional award recipients.
It is only through the support, sponsorship and participation of the engineering community that the DVEW committee can do all this. The DVEW activities are funded solely by contributions from numerous individuals, corporations, societies, and educational institutions. Without their support, the DVEW Committee would not have the resources to recognize the achievements of the engineering community in the Delaware Valley.
Please join many of your engineering friends and peers across the region in all engineering disciplines by making your contributions for another fantastic Delaware Valley Engineers Week.
At these events, we will be recognizing a number of award recipients. These awards are offered at the professional, collegiate, and secondary school levels. Maybe you know someone who should be recognized with one of these awards.
More details on each event and award recipients will be posted as they become available; be sure to check it out.

Why Celebrate Engineers Week
Engineers have helped build our nation since its founding. Our first president, George Washington, conducted engineering activities as a soldier and as a young man, surveying and mapping wilderness territories. Today, engineers are essential for building and maintaining the systems that protect our health and safety, restore and protect our environment, make our factories run and contribute to our economic future
Yet, for all these contributions toward building a modern world, there are many people who are not aware of what the more than 1.6 million engineers in this country do. Engineers Week is a strong venue to inform our citizens of the value of engineers, celebrate engineering technology and innovation and cultivate interest in math, science and engineering among the nation’s youth – tomorrow’s work force.
Note: DVEW is a committee of the Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia, a 501(c)6 organization. Contributions may be deductible as a business expense but are not deductible as a charitable contribution. An opportunity is provided to make a contribution to the student awards through the Philadelphia Engineering Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization; contributions to the Foundation are deductible as a charitable contribution to the extent permitted by law.
