The Engineers' Extra
The Raleigh Engineers Club (REC) has been in existence since 1926.  The club seeks to promote the Engineering field through monthly technical meetings and support of those pursuing a future in the Engineering discipline.  We award an annual scholarship to a Raleigh area graduating high school senior to enter the school of engineering at NC State. Our members have a diverse background of engineering disciplines and represent several companies and government agencies located in the Raleigh area.

The Raleigh Engineers Club has monthly  lunch meetings that  cover engineering topics of interest to all types of engineers and people interested in engineering activities regardless of discipline. The Raleigh Engineers Club is a NC Board of Registration for Engineers Certified provider of professional development hours (PDH credits) for licensed engineers. Eleven meetings are held annually with one set aside for scholarship awards and updates on successes of engineering graduates from NCSU. So ten professional development hours are provided each year.
