Mote & Associates Promotes Engineer’s Week

February 14-20, 2010 was designated as National Engineer’s Week. This week marked the 60th annual event to encourage students to consider engineering careers while building public understanding and appreciation of engineers' contributions to society. Mote & Associates, Inc., Engineers and Land Surveyors of 214 W. Fourth Street, Greenville, Ohio promoted Engineer’s Week in the following ways:

  • Joined with Mayor Mike Bowers to proclaim February 14-20, 2010 as National Engineer’s Week in Greenville.
  • Sponsored an “Engineer’s Week Challenge” (a balsa wood boom building contest) for the Engineering Tech Prep class (a basic engineering program for juniors and seniors) at Greenville High School.
  • Offered their 8th annual complimentary seminar entitled “Liabilities”. The seminar was presented to contractors, municipalities, etc. to help assist, educate, and answer any questions regarding the different types of liability issues they may face throughout their construction projects. 61 attendees received valuable information to facilitate planning for construction projects. The winners of the “Engineer’s Week Challenge” and their teacher were given awards at the seminar. Door prizes were awarded to 3 lucky attendees.

Mote & Associates is a Civil Engineering & Surveying Company consisting of 14 employees. They also promote careers in engineering in other ways. They sponsor a scholarship in the spring (see for details), encourage one day student mentorships throughout the school year, and hire engineering interns as warranted by their work load.
