Introduction For
Practicing Engineers

Welcome to DedicatedEngineers! We are a charitable/educational non-profit dedicated to “making a difference,” both in terms of advancing the engineering profession, as well as in helping improve the world through the practice of engineering.  In carrying out our mission, we seek to act as a clearinghouse for providing relevant information and resources of interest to the “professional” audience (i.e., practicing engineers), including career resources, recognition of professional accomplishments, and opportunities to "give back" to your community/society and/or the engineering profession. Enjoy!

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE PROGRAM AREA

DedicatedEngineers operates in three Program Areas - Pre-College, College and Professional Practice. Our Professional Practice Program focuses on:

  • Showcasing key engineering projects/engineered products, including featuring the individual engineers and collective teams behind them.
  • Promoting general public awareness of engineering.
  • Identifying opportunities for working professionals to: 1) give back to their communities or society as a whole, 2) help in recruiting pre-college youth to engineering studies and careers and 3) help in mentoring/supporting engineering students.
  • Identifying professional resources of particular interest/value to young engineers.
