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

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.
