Celebrate Engineer’s Week - Feb. 17-23, 2013


Meet the AIChE 2013 New Faces in Engineering Honoree


Esmeralda Luna-Ramos Process Engineer at Eastman Chemical

Esmeralda grew up in a technical family and is the first woman in her family to study engineering. Originally considering a career as a pharmacist, Esmeralda was excited to learn she could apply principles from science to help come up with solutions to the world's most challenging problems.

She puts a high value on the versatility of her engineering education saying, "A degree in engineering allows us to tackle any kind of problem because of our unique problem solving skill set - whether it is in design, manufacturing, research or business."

Engineer's Week Greetings from the International Space System

It's even Engineer's Week in outer space. Commander Kevin Ford provides an Engineer's Week greeting floating in the cabin of the ISS. Special thanks to NASA and The Engineers' Council, San Fernando Valley, California (www.engineerscouncil.org) for making this video possible.
