In celebration of National Engineering Week, the Mobile Area Council of Engineers, an umbrella organization for the area professional engineering societies, sponsors an annual awards program each year. One of the awards is the Engineering Project of the Year. Last year's award went to Austal for the Super Ferry project.
This year's award was presented to the Engineering Pathways Integrated Curriculum, or EPIC Program, at W. P. Davidson High School, for the school's work to foster an interest in and preparation for engineering careers among students. The EPIC program is in its fifth year and current enrollment is at 275 students. EPIC offers an enriched and challenging four-year curriculum in math and science to prepare students for engineering and related fields.
EPIC is open to students from throughout Mobile County and application is made directly to Davidson High School through the guidance office or the main office (221-3084).

From the College of Engineering at the University of South Alabama, Dr. John Steadman, Dean, and Robert Foley, Asst. Dean, were also recognized at the awards banquet held February 27th at Heron Lakes Country Club.
