Engineers Week promotes the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Founded by National Society of Professional Engineers in 1951, National Engineers Week (February 18–24, 2018) celebrates engineering professionals and raises public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to quality of life.
Today, we recognize and celebrate our own engineering team at Jackson Systems who develop and provide technical support for all of the products we build and distribute. If you’ve ever called Jackson Systems, you’ve spoken with our very knowledgeable and gifted team of engineers. Their forward-thinking and creative designs of HVAC energy products and outstanding contractor support is why we continue to succeed in zoning systems that beat all others for ease of operation and installation, reliability and affordability.
We honor our team of engineers this week and say “thank you” for your invaluable contribution and support at Jackson System. Meet many of our team of engineers at https://jacksonsystems.com/about/ise_team who are engineering our future!

In the United States, National Engineers Week is always the week in February which encompasses George Washington’s actual birthday, February 22. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers make. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills.
The celebration of National Engineers Week was started in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers in conjunction with President George Washington’s birthday. President Washington is considered as the nation’s first engineer, notably for his survey work.
