AIME leadership annually participates in functions hosted by related engineering groups, such as the NAE Convocation. It also had a seat on the AAES Board.
Many individuals from AIME's Member Societies have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. For information, visit https://www.nae.edu/.
The American Association of Engineering Societies was a multidisciplinary organization of engineering societies dedicated to advancing the knowledge, understanding, and practice of engineering. It dissolved in 2020. AAES member societies represented the mainstream of U.S. engineering – engineers in industry, government, and academia.
Vision – Advancing the engineering profession’s impact on the public good.
Mission – To serve as one voice for the U.S. engineering profession.
Awards - Honoring People for their Contributions to Engineering and Society
The American Association of Engineering Societies annually presented the following awards (new homes of these awards will be posted after dissolution approval):
- National Engineering Award
- Kenneth Andrew Roe Award
- Norm Augustine Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Communications
- John Fritz Medal
- AAES Engineering Journalism Award
- Joan Hodges Palladium Medal
- AAES Chair’s Award
The United States now participates in WFEO through the Engineering Societies of America, LLC (ESA). Visit https://www.wfeo.org/nationals/#americas for further information.
AAES and the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) developed an Engineering Competency Model (“the model”) to serve as a guide for the development of the engineering workforce. The model outlines the core competencies for advancement and success in the engineering profession.
AAES also published engineering workforce data.
