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.

New method to pay for lunch - We are now utilizing Eventbrite as an option to pay for lunch in advance which will count as your RSVP (no need to email your RSVP) and will allow you to skip the line to pay at the door. Within each event on our Eventbrite page, you can also pay your annual membership dues and donate to the scholarship fund. We are still offering the option to pay at the door with cash, check, or card. When using Eventbrite, you will not need to print your confirmation. We will have a printed list of everyone pre-paid and when you arrive, you can walk to the front of the line, check your name off the pre-paid list, collect your name tag, sign your name for your pdh credit, and take a seat. The deadline to utilize Eventbrite is the same as the cut-off for registration, the Wednesday prior to the meeting. A link directly to the registration page will be provided in the monthly meeting email. The Raleigh Engineers Club Eventbrite page can also be utilized to view all of the meeting registrations available.
* An important reminder: When responding to attend, please do so by the deadline, and be conscientious about your commitment. We are charged for unused meals, and at other times, have difficulty when we have more attend than planned. Lunch includes an appetizer, entrée, and water or iced tea (there is an extra charge to our club for any other beverages including coffee). We would appreciate your help with this as we carefully manage our club finances. Thank you!
We are now accepting scholarship applications from graduating Raleigh area high school seniors for entry into engineering at NC State.
