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.
Annual membership is only $35 per year and the meeting costs are a value with lunch included! Our goal is to provide great programs to its members, offer licensed members an opportunity for continuing education credits, and award a semester of tuition to NC State University. The scholarship goes to a deserving, graduating Raleigh area high school senior choosing engineering as a career at NC State. Membership is available to anyone working in support of the engineering profession. You do not have to be an engineer. Download an application here and bring it and your payment with you to the next meeting or email the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get you on the mailing list right away!
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. Note that you do not need to be a licensed engineer or a graduate engineer to be a member! View our Constitution and Bylaws !
