NRCS Celebrates our Engineers - Pi Day, March 14th, 2023

Engineers Week was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) in 1951 to raise awareness of the importance of a technical education, promote technical literacy, and inspire students to pursue a career in engineering.

NRCS Engineers help communities implement effective solutions to some of the toughest conservation engineering challenges of today.

Collectively the interdisciplinary NRCS workforce delivers conservation engineering technical assistance that tackles the major resource concerns of our time. Through the implementation of sound conservation engineering practices and principles, NRCS helps our customers and partners develop solutions that address water resource concerns, nutrient management, structural design challenges, energy conservation, disaster recovery, drought resiliency, technology development, environmental protection, geotechnical concerns and so much more.

Engineers and engineer techs of all disciplines work with farmers, producers, community leaders, partners, scientists, environmentalists, and field professionals, to advance agriculture, enhance the farm-to-table food supply, and safeguard our lands and watershed infrastructures. The USDA NRCS offers unparalleled longevity, an opportunity to serve the nation, and a diverse career path that leads to a high level of job satisfaction. No two days are alike!

Join us in celebrating our engineering change makers.
