Established in 1989 and made up of 21 professional and technical engineering societies, WCES has a common goal of promoting engineering and engineering in the community. The societies pool resources to:

Provide a vehicle of communication for promotion of the engineering professions, i.e. celebrate Engineers Week with a banquet each February.

Provide a forum for defining tasks and goals for the common benefit of all engineering societies, i.e. collectively serve our community's outreach programs.

Promote a general awareness of engineers and engineering to the Wichita and South Central Kansas area, i.e., present an annual Engineering Service Award to a member of the WCES organizations. Read More
Each year during Engineer's Week the Wichita Council of Engineering Societies hosts a banquet for all the societies. The banquet consists of a social, Engineering Mini-Fair, dinner, award ceremony, and presentation. Read More

WCES recognizes two members every year from our engineering societies for their community service efforts. The Engineering Service Award is open to all WCES society members while the Outstanding Young Engineer Award requires the former and the member to be under the age of thirty-five (35) with a maximum of 10 years experience (post BS).

Both awards are presented at the annual Engineers Week Banquet, hosted by the Engineering Council. Information regarding nomination criteria, forms for nomination, and past winnners are listed here.
