An engineering society is a professional organization for engineers. Some focus on providing support to women and minorities, some are umbrella organizations that include many different disciplines; others are discipline-specific. These societies may not only provide mentors, but also allow museum practitioners to gain access to a myriad of resources, including scholarships, engineering activities, summer enrichment opportunities and internships.
Note that many engineering societies have student chapter, commonly found at universities or technical colleges, so check with your local institutions to find out what groups meet in your area.
