The Engineering Center of St. Louis is the trusted resource in the greater St. Louis region on engineering issues in the eye of the public. The Center's Mission allows the organization to engage on a regional level as the leader in engineering creating excitement for the industry on a public level.
Relationships in the A/E/C industry building bridges with architecture and construction will be facilitated as well as the creation of thoughtful programing to increase networks through ongoing events, professional development, and collaborative initiatives. The goal is to provide additional value for the 35 Professional Affiliate Societies thus increasing the vitality and visibility of the engineering community. The vision is to create an engagement point in St. Louis for the 30,000 engineers, over 300 engineering firms, and large employers like Monsanto, Boeing, and Emerson.
The Center is proud to be partnered with more than 35 Professional Affiliate Societies representing over 14,000 professionals in the technical, scientific, and educational fields.
Professional development seminars are hosted at the Center to support continuing education for St. Louis professionals. Seminars are broad-reaching and cover basic business-management, technology-specific topics, and current industry trends.
In partnership with the Greater St. Louis Area Boy Scout Council of Learning for Life, the Center sponsors the Engineering Exploring Program. Boys and girls age 14 and older interested in pursuing a career in engineering gain real-world career experiences and leadership development opportunities.
In February the Center celebrates National Engineers Week. The purpose is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers
make. The Center takes the lead on this exciting week-long event.
The St. Louis STEM Alliance established a partnership between the St. Louis Science Center, Cortex, the Engineering Center, and the Math Educators of Greater St. Louis. These regional leaders’ mission is to keep St. Louis
