Celebrate Global Day of the Engineer 2017!

Share this post:

This Wednesday, April 5, will be the second Global Day of the Engineer – a day to celebrate and share how engineers impact the world. As part of that observation, and as a global partner of DiscoverE, IBM encourages all engineers (and those who love them!) to celebrate the accomplishments of engineers, help engage young people in engineering-related activities, and raise awareness of the innovations that engineers create every day.


We would like to encourage volunteers to:

  • Celebrate Engineers – gather colleagues, organize an event, recognize a peer
  • Engage Students – hands-on projects connect the dots between theory and application
  • Share a Local Innovation – start the conversation with a photo or in-person visit

Let’s make this year’s Global Day of the Engineer a worldwide success!

Diane Melley is Vice President for Global Citizenship Initiatives with IBM Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs.
