Our Mission

The Providence Engineering Society was founded in 1894 and is the oldest professional engineering society in the United States. The Society offers engineers opportunities to network, improve their technical competence, and socialize with fellow professionals. The Society is a multi-disciplinary engineering organization dedicated to education and the exchange of information among the various engineering organizations servicing the Rhode Island area and offers opportunities to bring professionals together for recognition, fellowship, and the exchange of information. These opportunities for the social and educational enrichment of the membership will be provided through printed page, electronic media, and live presentations.
