National Engineers Week at Luminant

Powering Texas through Engineering


Luminant at the American Nuclear Society’s Winter Meeting and Expo in Washington D.C.

Engineers play a critical role at Luminant and to recognize their numerous contributions, we’re celebrating National Engineers Week. Over the next few days, look for articles and social media posts highlighting our talented engineers and their industry-leading engineering projects that help us power Texas.

The importance of STEM fields at Luminant cannot be overlooked, as they are at the core of everything we do. In order to generate more than 13,700 megawatts of generation for the state, we rely on the sharpest and brightest engineers who have a strong passion for engineering. We have also worked with the next generation of engineers through a Dallas ISD engineering robotics competition to share our engineering expertise, along with problem solving and teamwork skills.
