Lockheed Martin Celebrates National Engineers Week

STEM Matters: Lockheed Martin Helps Answer the Call for the ‘E for Engineering’ in STEM


Join Lockheed Martin and DiscoverE in celebrating National Engineers Week! From February 16-22, 2014, we’re honoring professionals who create innovations that address today’s challenges while inspiring tomorrow’s generation.

Lockheed Martin’s 60,000 engineers, scientists and IT professionals deliver solutions that help defend global security, push the boundaries of scientific discovery and deliver essential services to citizens around the globe. And we want to make sure there’s enough technical talent to carry on these missions in the future.

“National Engineers Week offers an opportunity to reflect on and take pride in our engineers,” said Jeff Wilcox, Lockheed Martin vice president of engineering. “It is vital that we do our part to cultivate the next generation of engineering talent in order to ensure our nation’s future security and prosperity.” 

Hear more from Jeff (@wilcoxjeff) during our Feb. 19 #EweekChat14 Tweet Chat and connect with a vibrant community that’s championing the “E for Engineering” in STEM.
