National Engineers Week Banquet

Come celebrate National Engineers Week at Sweet Briar College!

Each year engineers, high school and college students, educators, and members of the public from Lynchburg and the Shenandoah Valley gather with us to celebrate engineering in our region and enjoy an evening of networking.

This year’s featured speaker is Dr. Paul Jaffe, an electronics engineer with the United States Naval Research Laboratory. Dr. Jaffe is known for his research on power beaming and space-based solar power.

For companies and groups interested in advertising opportunities, pop-up exhibits, including display tables, are available at no extra cost. Power and extra tables are available upon request. See the registration page to reserve.


Tickets are $40 for general admission, $25 for college students with ID and $15 for high school students with ID. Reserved tables for eight in a priority location near the stage and with custom signage are also available for $450. Tickets are free for current Sweet Briar students, staff and faculty with ID, but must be reserved in advance.

All payments must be received before the event. Payments will not be accepted at the door. Tickets will not be made available at the door.


Advanced registration is required. We expect this event to sell out, so please purchase your tickets early. Registration will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, 2023.
