RISE AND GRIND — In preparation for a series of 300-foot blast tube proficiency tests, technologist T.J. King welds a portion of the tube on a September morning.

Engineers make it happen at Sandia. In honor of National Engineers Week, which is hosted by the National Society of Professional Engineers and runs Feb. 18-24, Lab News selected a few recent photos of excellent engineering happening around the Labs.

This year’s theme Welcome to the Future centers on paving the way for a brighter and more diverse future in engineering. This goal is shared by Sandia’s community involvement team and volunteers who aim to inspire the future of engineering through their efforts.
