February 19th marks the start of Engineers Week 2017. EWeek (February 19–25, 2017) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
At TekTone®, all products are made possible through research and development by our engineering department. From competitive analysis and suggestions from the field, they take ideas and bring them to life. TekTone's most recent achievement, the Tek-CARE®120, is an engineering feat designed to replace many existing nurse call systems with minimal effort. The fluidity of use and aesthetically pleasing design were designed and manufactured all within the walls of our facility in North Carolina. The recent release of the Tek-CARE® app also demonstrates the never-ending capabilities of the engineering team and their ability to innovate and expand within the Tek-CARE® product line.
Because engineers are so vital, TekTone® assists in the education of local engineering students. TekTone's engineering department participates in combined programs with Western Carolina University where students can receive hands-on experience with research and development, including the development of products as a part of their capstone course.
The development of engineers starts at a young age, so encourage young students to follow their passion for engineering. Engineers play an ever-increasing role in our day-to-day lives. Take time to celebrate their work this week!
