INCOSE San Diego Chapter hosts Fifth Annual Engineering Night aboard the USS Midway Museum to raise awareness of STEM needs in our local schools.
September 25, 2016 6:00pm to 9:00pm
The San Diego Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the San Diego Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) and the INCOSE Foundation, are proud to announce we are hosting the fifth annual San Diego Engineering Night on September 25, 2016, at the USS Midway Museum in Downtown San Diego. The San Diego Engineering Geek Night on the USS Midway Museum is a local industry and academic event dedicated to raising Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) awareness and support for local K-12 schools in the San Diego region.
The increasing complexity of today’s systems along with a current and projected long-term shortage of qualified workers inspires INCOSE to encourage future generations to pursue engineering and science careers. These fields include aerospace, defense, telecommunications, energy, water and waste management, transportation, homeland and cyber security, and health care.
INCOSE’s goal is to specifically help science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs that have funding shortfalls in local schools. The programs, better known as STEM, are designed to interest and excite students about careers in technical and scientific fields such as systems engineering. Last year’s fundraising raised $14,050 through generous contributions from Cubic Corporation, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), CareFusion, Cox Communications, International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA), SolidProfessor and individual members. These contributions resulted in awards to 11 San Diego area schools.
