The Citadel's DiscoverE Week begins FEBRUARY 13, 2016
For more information visit our new website :

Each year The Citadel joins the nation in celebrating National Engineers Week (also referred to as DiscoverE Week).

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, National Engineers Week was created to increase public awareness and appreciation of the engineering profession. George Washington, the nation's first president, has been described as America's first engineer and land surveyor himself, and was instrumental in establishing an initiative that led to the founding of West Point. 

The Citadel has a rich engineering heritage dating back to 1842, making it the fifth oldest engineering school in the United States. Each year during Engineers Week, The Citadel hosts a number of exciting design competitions for teams of Lowcountry elementary, middle and high school students. We invite you to click on the tabs above or icons below to learn more about the Storm The Citadel! Trebuchet Competition, the Robotics Competition and the Bridge Competition hosted by The School of Engineering and the STEM Center of Excellence at The Citadel.
