Individual MembershipEngineering is the cornerstone of the American lifestyle as we know it today. It tackles major issues and is truly woven into the fabric of each of our daily lives.
At the same time, it is clear, that the engineering profession is currently in crisis. Over the past several years, it has been impacted by the pressures of the global economy and the diminishing numbers of young people choosing technical careers.
Additionally, there is fragmentation of the engineering community as "specialty" areas emerged over time.
The Engineers' Club of Philadelphia is working to resolve the challenges you face. It is the catalyst in the Philadelphia region to unite the engineering community. Through increased professional development opportunities, information exchange, and collaborative efforts with local engineering firms, technical societies and educational institutions, the ECP can help stem this crisis and reinvigorate the engineering community in the greater Philadelphia region.
The Club uniquely serves the entire engineering community through inclusion of all disciplines. Membership is not limited to engineers; we encourage anyone involved with the engineering community or engineering projects to join. It is perfectly positioned to be the Engineering Center in the Philadelphia Region.

It stimulates interest in the field so young people want to become an engineer.
