PSEC Events

The Council sponsors or operates several events throughout the year. We invite you to participate. Please have a look at our calendar below to see upcoming events.

  • Mentor Nights – We hold several of these events throughout the year at local colleges. It is an opportunity for students to interact with the local engineering community to learn about the breadth of engineering disciplines that are practiced here.
  • Engineering Banquet – Held every year in February during Engineers Week. This is the event where the PSEC presents the Engineering Awards.
  • Engineering Fair – Held every year in February at the Museum of Flight. This is a chance for youngsters to come out and see what engineering is all about and show off their engineering projects.
  • Officers Workshop – Another annual event where the many member societies of the PSEC discuss what we are doing and how we can work together.

Here is our events calendar. You may also want to import it to your calendar via icalendar.

    Keynote address: Suzanna Darcy-Henneman
    Though best known as Boeing's first woman Production Test Pilot, Suzanna Darcy-Henneman began her Boeing career as an engineer, soon moving into the role as a trainer at Boeing's school for airline pilots. As lead test pilot for the 777, Darcy-Henneman set a world record for distance flown by a commercial aircraft. Along with a crew of 7 other pilots, she flew a Boeing 777 non-stop from Hong Kong to London in just over 22 hours. She was inducted into the Women in Aviation Pioneer Hall of Fame in 2010. A frequent speaker at events and an active mentor to other women test pilots, Darcy-Henneman exemplifies the values of SWE, and we look forward to hearing her speak about her experiences.

    The Ray's Boathouse Sunrise brunch features a selection of salads, Eggs Benedict, French Toast, salmon side dishes, and roasted potatoes. Please contact swe.pnw.prof.develop@gmail.com if you have any dietary restrictions, and we'll work with Ray's to make sure we have an option for you.
