Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC)
The local IISE Puget Sound Chapter is one of the 25 local engineering Societies that make up the Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC). As a group, PSEC is involved with several engineering educational activities including the K-12 Engineering Fair, providing speakers to high schools & middle schools, and Mentor Nights at local University and Community Colleges.
Several of the PSEC member societies sponsor engineering education programs that target middle school & high school students: Popsicle Stick Bridge Building contest, Future Cities Competition, Math Counts, and FIRST Robotics competition. All of these programs utilize volunteer engineers, frequently from Younger Member Forums.
University of Washington IISE Student Chapter
The University of Washington has a very active Student IISE Chapter. The Puget Sound IISE Chapter tries to support several of their events as well as the ISE Department’s events. These include their Mock Interviews and Resume Writing Workshops.
The Student Chapter usually provides volunteers for the IISE booth at the PSEC K-12 Engineering Fair and works with the Puget Sound Chapter on some joint events like Industry Panel discussions held on the U.W. campus.
