The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers is among the groups supporting National Engineers Week, which runs through Saturday.

Designed to encourage young people to enter the field, it promotes study in math and science by high school students.

“National Engineers Week showcases how our profession engineers the world we live in,” said ASHRAE President Kent Peterson. “From buildings to manufacturing and transportation, engineers have been behind so many modern-day marvels. Mankind also faces many engineering challenges today and in the future on how to improve sustainable life on earth. ASHRAE is proud to be involved in this program and celebration.”

ASHRAE has supported the program several times in the past, even serving as its lead group in 2003 and starting the New Faces of Engineering program.
