Professional Engineering Societies

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.

Minority and Woman-Focused Societies

Umbrella Societies

  • American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES)
    AAES is the umbrella organization for engineering and engineering related professional societies in the US. The objective of AAES is to work with its member societies to advance the knowledge and practice of engineering in the public interest.
  • American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE)
    ASEE brings together engineering educators from all of the engineering and engineering technology fields to collaborate on solutions to promote excellence in instruction, research, public service, and practice.
  • National Academy of Engineering (NAE)
    Created by Congress to advise the federal government on issues involving science and technology, NAE membership consists of over 2000 peer-elected individuals. NAE analyzes and reports on technical aspects of public and military issues and concerns.
  • National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE)
    NSPE strengthens the engineering profession by promoting engineering licensure and ethics, enhancing the engineer image, advocating and protecting professional engineers’ legal rights at the national and state levels, publishing news of the profession, providing continuing education opportunities, and much more.
