What are you doing for eWeek?
Engineers celebrate their profession with eWeek activities, many aimed at exciting youth about what engineering can do for them, and for the world.
Engineers Week, Feb. 16-22, 2014, is a time to celebrate how engineers make a difference in the world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers, and bring engineering to life for children, educators, and parents, according to organizers, DiscoverE. This year’s theme is “Let’s make a difference.”
Most in the U.S. have little grasp of the engineering profession, and the collaborative and creative nature that enhances quality of life.
DiscoverE said: “Engineers Week is a time to make a difference by celebrating our accomplishments and sharing our knowledge, experiences, and enthusiasm. It is a time to turn comments like ‘I didn’t know that’ into exclamations of ‘I want to do that!’ It is a time to come together and mobilize our colleagues—engineers, engineering students, technicians, and technologist—to volunteer to make a difference by visiting a classroom, recognizing the work of a colleague, or hosting a public event.”
It’s not too late. Join an eWeek activity in process in your area.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
