Save the date now for the biggest Engineers Week event in Pittsburgh. Last year our annual award presentations and dinner was attended by more than 525 guests.

NEW THIS YEAR! The ESWP Annual Banquet is moving to a new location - the Westin Convention Center Hotel.

Guest speaker for the Banquet will be Dennis Yablonsky, Chief Executive Officer of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development and its affiliated organizations - the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, the Pennsylvania Economy League of Greater Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance.

We are proud to announce that E. Joseph "Joe" Duckett, P.E., Ph.D. has been selected to receive the 2015 Metcalf Award.

Named after the Society's first President, William Metcalf, the Award is one of the most prestigious professional awards for members of the engineering profession. The Metcalf Award has been presented annually since 1963, and represents significant achievement in the engineering profession.

Awards Information
In conjunction with our National Engineers Week program, it is our goal each year to recognize an exemplary engineer and an outstanding project from the Western Pennsylvania region. To that end, a Special Awards Committee has been established within the ESWP elected Board of Directors and will make selections based upon the criteria included on the nomination forms. Awards will be presented in a ceremony during the Banquet. The attention that these awards will bring will highlight the important contributions engineers make to our society. It is the hope that these awards will represent a meaningful impetus in attracting the best minds to the field and encouraging those in the field to excel at their work. Check out our Awards Page for the latest information.
