Fluke Corp. joins the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in celebrating World Engineering Day 2021 (WED2021) on March 4th. Themed “Engineering for A Healthy Planet – Celebrating the UNESCO Engineering Report,” WED2021 highlights engineers and engineering’s achievements to improve modern life and support sustainable development.
Founded by electrical engineer John Fluke, Fluke employs more than 600 engineers worldwide, who along with their predecessors’ engineering achievements, enable the company to maintain its world leader status in test tools and software.
“Since its founding in 1948, Fluke has been a company where engineering and innovation are the lifeblood of everything we do,” said Fluke President Marc Tremblay. “We celebrate World Engineering Day because we know the vital role engineers play every day in solving problems, delivering vital resources to people, and creating a healthier planet.”
Fluke will honor engineers on March 4th with a series of online events, including:
- A series of videos featuring a diverse group of Fluke engineers, discussing their impetus for entering the field, their passion for engineering, and the people who have inspired them.
- A day-long takeover of Fluke’s Instagram page by Fluke engineers — answering questions and giving a behind the curtain look at engineering at Fluke.
- Posts on the Fluke blog.
- Additional content on Fluke’s LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
If you want to change the world for the better, become an engineer
WED2021 will focus on celebrating the launch of the 2nd UNESCO Engineering Report “Engineering for Sustainable Development: Delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals.” The new report highlights the crucial role of engineering in delivering the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and shows how an inclusive and gender equitable engineering profession can bring about new perspectives and thus respond to the shortage of engineers.
“Engineers are needed more than ever to meet the requirements for the sustainable development of humanity,” said Fluke Vice President of Engineering David Swan. “At Fluke, we value the fresh points of view that diversity and inclusion bring to creating engineering solutions. We embrace World Engineering Day’s challenge to women and people of color that ‘if you want to change the world for the better, become an engineer.’”
