SYRACUSE, NY, 19-FEB-01 -- Engineers from Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems (NE&SS)-Syracuse are visiting Central New York schools during February and March in activities relating to National Engineers Week. National Engineers Week is intended to increase the public's awareness and appreciation of the engineering profession. During the week, engineers across the U.S. participate in a variety of activities to help create an interest in engineering, math and science, especially among young men, women and minorities. With only nine percent of all engineering positions now filled by women, National Engineers Week 2001 will specifically focus on encouraging young women to seek careers in math, science and engineering
At our site in Syracuse we have nearly 1,000 fine, professional engineers and we have a keen interest in spreading the word about what a stimulating and satisfying career this can be, said Mike Smith, president, NE&SS-Radar Systems.
