The San Diego Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), along with the San Diego Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) and the INCOSE Foundation are proud to announce that we are hosting the third annual San Diego Engineering Night on February 16, 2014, 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 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 INCOSE raised $14,500 through generous contributions from Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Cubic Corporation and Northrop Grumman.
These contributions resulted in awards to 19 San Diego area school classrooms for computers, software, and science teaching aids. This year the San Diego INCOSE has a goal of raising at least $20,000 in order to reach out to more schools in the San Diego region.
San Diego Engineering Night begins at 6:00 p.m. Attendees will enjoy admission to the USS Midway Museum, a guided tour, flight simulator rides, a spaghetti buffet, a student robotics demonstration, networking with engineering colleagues and a fantastic flight deck view of San Diego Harbor.
Tickets are $30 for adults, $20 for those 17 years of age and under, and children under 5 years of age free. In addition, a family package is available for $100 which includes admission for 2 adults and up to 4 people between 17 and 6 years of age.
Tickets can be purchased online at http://sdincose.org/3rd-midway-event and sponsorships are still available.
