Engineering for the future to make a difference

Engineering for the future to make a difference

February 21, 2022

This week is Engineers Week and we are proud to celebrate our engineers, technical professionals and scientists. When looking at Ball Aerospace’s portfolio and the challenges we solve, I am overwhelmed by the incredible things we achieve. It’s easy to focus on each of our day-to-day tasks as we each deliver our individual piece of the puzzle. However, this week is an opportunity to take a step back and appreciate the impact engineering has on society and to see that we are – quite literally – helping build the future.

For most of us, when we were younger, we didn’t dream of designing gimbals, building antennas, integrating spacecraft, writing test scripts, optimizing optics or building data analytics software. We knew we wanted to make a difference – to contribute to society and to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We’re lucky that we get to do that by delivering on our customers’ missions. We are changing and contributing to society and, inevitably, inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers.

It’s an exciting time for the Aerospace & Defense Industry. We’re reimagining how we engineer and how we tackle challenges, and that will lead to a new generation of missions. With this momentum, we can continue driving the future of engineering.

Thank you to all engineers, technical professionals, scientists and program supports for all you do to tackle challenges and contribute to our future society.
