Engineers Week: Supporting the Development of Industry Experts
February 20, 2023
For 110 years, Trane has thrived on the development of a well-supported, engineer-led existence. Engineering is at the core of what we do – it’s the foundation for our unique applications and systems expertise, it’s the commitment to using technology and innovation to develop solutions for an evolving buildings industry, and it’s the dedication to produce what is right for today but will transform tomorrow.
“Happy Engineers Week! Engineers play a vital role in “Creating the Future,” the official theme for the week. That is certainly true at Trane Technologies, where I am honored to work alongside many of the best engineers in the industry. Their innovative solutions to global challenges are changing the world and contributing to a healthier planet every day. If you are considering an engineering career, we invite you to join us!”
George Wan, Vice President of Engineering & Technology
That’s why Engineers Week (EWeek) is not just an important set of dates on the calendar but a reason to engage with engineers young and old, as well as individuals interested in pursuing a STEM-based career. Since 1951, the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) has committed a wealth of resources to ensure “a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce” through collaboration across communities, public and private organizations, schools and cultural societies.1
In our local communities, Trane engineers regularly participate in activities to spread passion and awareness for engineering and STEM-based roles. Through associations like ASHRAE, NSPE, and SWE to name a few, an engineer or organization committed to the field and attracting young people to it is never far away.
This week on Trane.com and on social media, we’ll be highlighting diversity of perspective from a few of our engineers. You can also find a variety of recent engineer stories in the Trane Newsroom – see a sampling shared below.
Learn like the future depends on it.
The future belongs to those who never stop learning and for engineers lifelong learning is a critical component to maintaining a balance of intrinsic skill and the consumption of new information like developing technologies and standards. Trane supports engineers in the field by providing a wide range of educational resources designed to deepen your knowledge and improve your designs. Whether you’re looking for technical guides, on-demand webinars on today’s latest topics, or in-depth full or multi-day training programs, you can find everything you need in our Education & Training center. Or visit TraneEngineer.com to access our latest resources including design and analysis tools, technical drawings and more.
