Date:9/19/2013

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IEEE-USA will serve as lead engineering society for Engineers Week 2014, 16-22 February. EWeek (www.eweek.org) celebrates the key role engineers play in our quality of life, and seeks to inspire students to pursue a career in engineering.

IEEE-USA is partnering with DuPont, a global science company that serves markets as diverse as agriculture, nutrition, electronics and communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.

"We are pleased to partner with such a prestigious science company as DuPont," 2014 IEEE-USA President Gary Blank said. "Both organizations have expanded well beyond what they are best known for. DuPont is doing great work in food security and biotechnology, and IEEE has many members working in fields such as oceanic engineering, professional communication, product safety and biomedical engineering." 

"I'm looking forward to the great work IEEE-USA and DuPont can accomplish together."

DuPont and IEEE-USA are planning a number of joint activities in conjunction with the National Engineers Week Foundation. They will be announced as details are unveiled.

"We are excited about this partnership and it's a great way for us to celebrate the industry, as well as our engineers," said Karen Fletcher, vice president, DuPont Engineering & Chief Engineer. "We employ thousands of engineers who are problem-solvers helping to make a difference in communities throughout the world.

"National Engineers Week is a fitting opportunity for us to collaborate and highlight the role engineers play in creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer and healthier life for people everywhere."

DuPont (NYSE: DD) has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials and services since 1802. The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs, and thought leaders we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment. For additional information about DuPont and its commitment to inclusive innovation, please visit http://www.dupont.com/.
