Celebrated annually, National Engineers Week reaffirms the commitment of engineers to making a difference in the work they lead in their roles at organizations across the country.

This year’s theme, “Welcome to the Future,” points to how engineering is tackling today’s global challenges – transitioning to clean energy and improving infrastructure – of which DTE Energy and our teams of engineers are working toward.

Let’s meet four DTE team members applying their engineering abilities in service to Michigan’s communities and businesses:
