This Engineers Week, the engineering societies of the Tampa Bay area will be hosting the annual Tampa Bay Engineers Week Banquet on February 21, 2019, at the TPepin’s Hospitality Centre.

This premier event brings together local leaders and engineering professionals to recognize the outstanding achievements of Engineers, Science Teachers, Math Teachers, and Students in our community.

Additionally, awards will be presented to outstanding engineers in each discipline, as well as local engineering students excelling in their engineering related studies and Young Professionals. The banquet also features the Lignell Awards. These awards, named after a former Chairman for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), are given to local High School educators who are performing outstanding work in the instruction of the STEM topics (science, technology, engineering and math). The organizers of the event recognize the important role these individuals play in encouraging students to pursue technological degrees in college.

The banquet is a combination of efforts by all the Engineering Societies of West Central Florida.  This event brings together professionals in all fields from all around Tampa and Florida’s west coast.
