E-Day 2021 will take place virtually on Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 9 am to 3 pm!
Engineers Day, or E-Day is a celebration of all things engineering, from building bridges to discovering new medications to writing the software that powers our cell phones, engineers and computer scientists do the things that make our 21st-century world work. Please preregister for E-Day so that we can keep you updated with this year’s schedule of online events for all ages.
UK has been celebrating E-Day since 1946! Traditionally, E-Day crowns the internationally celebrated Engineers Week. While Covid-19 prevents us from celebrating E-Day in-person, we now have the opportunity to celebrate with online activities for all ages! Normally, E-Day brings approximately 3,000 visitors to UK’s campus; with our event going virtual, UK’s celebration of engineers and computer scientists will be accessible to everyone.
“Countless students have told me through the years that their first exposure to engineering occurred at UK’s E-Day.” – Thomas Lester, dean of the UK College of Engineering for 22 years.
E-Day is sponsored by a coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies dedicated to promoting math and science literacy and ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce.
We are excited about creating an engaging, fun and insightful experience that will inspire the next generation of engineers.
