Plan Of Action For EngineersPresentation Transcript
Plan of Action for Engineers’ week 2007-2008 ENGINEERS’ WEEK IS February 19 th – 22 nd
Objective: Formulate an effective plan to organize and coordinate Engineers’ Week, a series of student oriented functions over a time span of 4 days, February 19 th – 22 nd
Using information gathered from Engineering Societies, create a detailed timeline with important events, deadlines and milestones in order to manage and assess the progress of Engineers’ Week.
Through this plan of action, we will achieve a successful Engineers’ Week that is
A successful E-week?
What is a Successful E-week?
a SUCCESSFUL Engineers’ Week will allow all participating parties (Students, Engineering Societies, and corporate sponsors) to walk away with a positive experience .
Define: What kind of events do we want to hold?
Events that attract the most amount of people.
We want events to be as inclusive as possible and that bring together the most amount of engineers from different focuses, at once.
Events will be Entertaining.
Why would anyone want to go to a boring event?
Events will be beneficial.
Engineers will gain something from going to event.
Event will be time well spent. (EVENT > W.O.W.)
Events will be accessible for students.
Who are we going to attract?
We have over 20 excited individuals working on contacting and bringing in corporate sponsors for E-week.
They will be direct liaisons between us and the corporate sponsors, so that we can have a smooth transition of bringing corporate sponsors to events.

Responses from Societies
1. Engineering Date Auction!!, Bonfire, Game Night, Screen on the Green
2. Entertaining: Gronsky or somebody like that getting slimed
Attract: Mariokart Tournament w/ prizes
Beneficial: Singled Out game show
Chi Epsilon: The Civil Engineering Honors Society
1. date auction screen on the green broomball entertain: professor auction attract: food beneficial: industry infosessions
I like: campus wide capture the flag
Bonfire/Picnic (Grouped as one or the other)
screen on the green (this is a movie right?)
1) I think engineers would be most entertained with parties. 2) I think engineers would be most attracted to movie-events (like hella nerdy shit) 3) Most beneficial would definitely be a professional night or something
1. Broomball, Engineers makeover/date auction, SPAC, Game night 2. Entertaining: Hypnotist Attractive: Engineering Sports Night Beneficial: Professional Development Workshops / Networking / Panel with Industrial Contacts Also, HKN and TBP are thinking of holding our Intersociety sports night during E-Week if possible . It will depend somewhat on Maxwell field availability which can be volatile at times. Let me know if you forsee any problems with this. We'll make sure to coordinate with the other E-Week events as to ensure no overlapping times.
So ASME thought of something not on the list that we would like to do as our Night Event. We would like to do the Screen on the Green , but we'd like to expand on it by making it a carnival night (i.e. there will be a screen on the green, popcorn machine, cotton candy, makeshift games to win ASME t-shirts, etc). If that gets shot down, we'll think of something else. My officers aren't too fond of the ideas on the list =/ Anyways, to answer the other questions: ENTERTAINING - purely just hanging out ATTRACTING - free food BENEFICIAL - uh...have fun?
Top 4 choices: 1. Wine & cheese with grad students 2. Screen on the Green 3. Inter-societal triathlon (engineering focused) - don't know what this means, but it could be cool 4. Clubbing in SF ENTERTAINING: Karaoke ATTRACTIVE: Ping pong tournament BENEFICIAL: Any social activities with employers/representatives Note: Bowling, ultimate frisbee, ping pong tournament, touch football, volleyball, badminton, tennis, and other sports activities like that would be really cool.
The four events: Bonfire, Clubbing in SF, Wine and Cheese with Grad Students and Paintball .
Entertaining and Attractive: ones that involve either competition or professors doing crazy things (think dunk tank...).
Beneficial: would be events that reach out the community (both campus and beyond) to show them the importance of engineering and what we do. Hope that helps!
Entertaining: Engineering Pageant at a formal event (like homecoming)
ATTRACT: Lan Party
Beneficial: Lecture series
4 events from the list we like are: Bonfire, Screen on the Green, Game night and Broomball. Events not on the list: entertaining - trip to the SF Exploratorium attracting - Tech show on campus beneficial - career fair on campus
1. Inter-societal Triathlon Bonfire Quiz bowl Date auction 2. Entertaining: Competition to build something with a mix of EECS mech, civil, etc ... Attract: Free dinner Beneficial: Lecture series from industry and professors
1. Pick 4 events from the list that you like. Game night, bonfire, screen on the green, engineering makeovers/date auction 2.
ENTERTAINING: bowling (but a date auction would be way more entertaining)
ATTRACT: tour of scharfen burger
BENEFICIAL : resume workshop
1. Campus wide capture the flag Clubbing Screen on the Green Game night
2. - karaoke - free food...bbq? - study night...hehe, no. um, probably just a celebratory evening...classy...with inspirational alumni or professors...talking about how engineering is pretty freaking awesome. like an engineering appreciation reception or something. uplift everyone's spirits and make them appreciate cal engineering =)
4 picks: capture the flag, bonfire, game night, broomball.
Most beneficial : Watching the Sandlot, and then playing baseball. Everyoneshould see this movie. Most entertaining : Stars War marathon Attract the most : making s'mores (possibly at the bonfire)
1)Bonfire Clubbing Screen on the Green Broom ball 2) We are all used to the technical events so I think a social one would be a good idea and the most entertaining. As far as what kind, maybe something like bowling or attending a sporting event. I think that as far as most beneficial, a social event, again, would be the best idea. It would not only give everyone a good break from school but would also help in the formation of new study groups.
Campus wide capture the flag
Soap Box Racing Engineering makeover/date auction Wine & cheese with grad students
Entertaining: Jeopardy Attract the most engineers: Smoothie night Beneficial for engineers: Resume/interview workshop
