Founded by NSPE in 1951, Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. This week is a time for everyone to celebrate and recognize the people who create today’s awe-inspiring wonders like cloud-busting skyscrapers and human travel to Mars. And a great opportunity to reflect on how very different our lives would be without daily marvels like clean drinking water, computers and cars.Read More

Why did he choose SSM?
After the experiences I had at SSM as a summer intern, I decided to return for full time employment after graduation. The combination of a diverse work experience, up to date technology and the people I work with all were key factors in my decision. The fact that almost every day I get to be in a different environment is incredible, not to mention getting to use the latest technologies in my line of work to their full potential to produce high quality data efficiently and accurately.
