Engineers' Week

Engineers’ Week

The University of Missouri has hosted Engineers’ Week in March since 1903 when our engineering students were the first to discover St. Patrick to be an engineer. This festive occasion predates Homecoming and is enjoyed by generations of Mizzou Engineers every year.

Engineers’ Week includes eight days of fun and festivity that honors St. Patrick, the patron saint of engineering, celebrates engineers and is considered the best time of year for engineering students. The celebration of E-week extends beyond the College of Engineering. When the dome atop Jesse Hall is lit green, everyone at Mizzou knows it’s Engineers’ Week.

Take pride in the engineering legacy and become part of this tradition.


Originating in 1903, Mizzou Engineers’ Week is marked by more than a century of history and traditions.

E-Week Events

The engineering students celebrate with events throughout the week, including the dome lighting and knighting ceremony.

Lab Exhibits

Mizzou Engineers create videos of engineering research, topics and projects to inspire schoolchildren to learn more about STEM and pursue engineering.

St. Patrick’s Court

Ten E-Week Royalty candidates represent Mizzou Engineering throughout E-Week.


E-Week is made possible through the help and support of our generous sponsors.
