Seeking Engineering Resources? 

Consequently, a wide number of amazing organizations exist that dedicate themselves to promoting engineering resources and services. 

Some organizations cover a broad range while others target specific fields of engineering. 

For example, Engineering.com targets a broad market of engineers offering a wide range of topics.

On the other hand, IEEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers) specifically targets engineers in electronics which we closely with. 

Let’s take a look at a number of engineering resources that deliver outstanding value for engineers. 

Engineering Resources That Make a Difference

We have the privilege of working with many brilliant engineers on a daily basis. 

However, we now find ourselves working with engineers from a wide variety of industries. 

Most importantly, when working with engineers, you need to bring your “A” game with every conversation. 

Characteristics of engineers: Analytical. Creative. Visionary. Out of the box thinkers. Determined. 

Above all, engineers work relentlessly to solve a problem. They never give up until their product works. 

Subsequently, there are a number of valuable engineering resources to consider as you seek engineering information. 

Therefore, we complied a list of engineering resources hopefully you find helpful. Organizations dedicated to further promoting engineers and the engineering profession.

Lastly, click on any of the headings below to go directly to each website.

Engineering.com 

Engineering.com is the place for curious minds to discover and share the best in engineering. We focus our passion & energy on three major activities: Stories – Discussions – Projects 

Engineering.com offers a Projectboard, a vibrant forum, a section covering games, as well as a job board and much more. Check out of post next week to learn more about Engineering.com. 

ABET = Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc.

At ABET, our purpose is to assure confidence in university programs in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. Additionally, the standards we set and the quality we guarantee, inspires confidence in those who aim to build a better world. One that is safer, more efficient, more comfortable and more sustainable.

We accredit college and university programs in the disciplines of applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree levels. With ABET accreditation, students, employers and the society we serve can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce. We began as the educational standard against which professional engineers in the United States were held for licensure.

UES = United Engineering Society

The United Engineering Foundation Inc. (UEF) is the successor organization to the United Engineering Society (UES) which was founded in 1904 with the generous support of Andrew Carnegie. The members of the UEF are the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers, as well as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

VISION: To advance the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity. MISSION: To support engineering and education by, among other means, making grants.

NSPE = National Society of Professional Engineers

In 1934, a group of professional engineers met in New York City to establish an organization dedicated to the non-technical concerns of licensed professional engineers. The National Society of Professional Engineers stands today as the only national organization committed to addressing the professional concerns of licensed PEs across all disciplines

Vision: NSPE is a member-centric, nimble, future-focused and responsive organization, serving as the recognized voice and advocate of licensed Professional Engineers.

With more than 30,000 individual members from 88 countries, and 95 corporate members, AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. Created in 1963 by the merger of the two great aerospace societies of the day, the American Rocket Society (founded in 1930 as the American Interplanetary Society), and the Institute of the Aerospace Sciences (established in 1933 as the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences). AIAA carries forth a proud tradition of more than 80 years of aerospace leadership.

AIME = American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers

Founded in 1871 by 22 mining engineers in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. AIME was one of the first national engineering societies established in the United States, and, along with ASCE (civil), ASME (mechanical), IEEE (electrical), and AIChE (chemical), it is known as an Engineering Founder Society. Together, the engineering Founder Societies form the United Engineering Foundation (UEF).

ASCE = American Society of Civil Engineers

The American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries. Founded in 1852, ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society.

ASCE stands at the forefront of a profession that plans, designs, constructs, and operates society’s economic and social engine – the built environment – while protecting and restoring the natural environment. Through the expertise of its active membership, ASCE is a leading provider of technical and professional conferences and continuing education, the world’s largest publisher of civil engineering content, and an authoritative source for codes and standards that protect the public.

ASME = American Society of Mechanical Engineers

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, as well as skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 100,000 members in 140+ countries. Thirty-two thousand of these members are students.

From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers as well as academic leaders, ASME’s members are as diverse as the engineering community itself. ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs. Programs also include continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach.

IIE = Institute of Industrial Engineers

Industrial and systems engineers make things better in any industry.  From automobile manufacturing and aerospace, to healthcare, forestry, finance, leisure, as well as education. The Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, founded in 1948, helps its members improve complex organizations around the world and across industries. Throughout their careers, members turn to IISE for tools and connections that provide an integrated and systemic perspective to business challenges. Solving complex problems is our common objective.

IISE, the world’s largest professional society dedicated solely to the support of the profession, is an international, nonprofit association. IISE provides leadership for the application, education, training, research, and development of industrial and systems engineering.
