Engineers' Week Events

Participating in E-Week

The St. Pat’s Board has tirelessly worked with College administrators, volunteers, campus officials and others in order to bring about the 119th edition of Engineers’ Week at Mizzou. Although some events have been modified or moved to a virtual environment, we are still able to celebrate Engineers’ Week and honor St. Patrick this year.

As part of the effort to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, please make sure to follow Show Me Renewal guidelines as well as the Boone Co. & City of Columbia guidelines. Visitors to the University of Missouri campus are asked to comply with Mizzou’s safety guidelines and expectations.

Please do not come to campus if you are experiencing symptoms, feel unwell and/or have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
