Ross & Baruzzini is proud to celebrate National Engineers Week 2021. Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, Engineers Week is dedicated to promoting a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing interest in engineering and technology careers.
More than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies take part in Engineering Week. Ross & Baruzzini believes this is a critical opportunity to share the importance of technical education throughout our communities.
From Vision to Reality
“Imaging Tomorrow” is this year’s theme for Engineers Week. This theme is personal. What will our future look like?
Exciting technology like augmented reality (AR), smart cities, and 3D printing are more than trends; these technologies are improving our lives. AR is now utilized in CAD applications and for hand-on training experiences. Smart cities use technology to improve how citizens and businesses connect with resources. Advanced 3D printing creates custom orthopedic implants and other enhanced medical tools.
Looking to Tomorrow
Engineering is vital to answering global challenges. Through our internship program, we support STEM students beginning their careers, providing mentorship and hands-on skills for success. Ross & Baruzzini is also looking forward to participating in the College Engineering Mentorship Program launched by the Engineering Center of St. Louis. This mentorship program focuses on providing opportunities for freshman and sophomore students to gain insight into the day-to-day lives of engineers while exploring tomorrow’s technology.
“Technology affects every aspect of our lives and drastically shapes how we work, live, and communicate”, said Trista Stahr, vice president of human resources. “Ross & Baruzzini is excited to work with tomorrow’s engineers while supporting our dedicated teams working to solve today’s challenges.”
