The Eastern Idaho Engineering Council was established in September 2001 to perform educational and charitable activities in the areas of engineering, science and technology; to provide a coordination role for inter-society events; to provide a resource upon which the member societies can draw for help in planning and executing various functions and events; to provide a forum for dialog and debate among the actively participating eastern Idaho sections of professional engineering societies; and to provide a single point of contact for outside entities desiring assistance or support from the engineering community.
Council activities include planning and organization of annual Engineers Week activities, supporting the regional MathCounts competition, and maintaining an active calendar of local section activities. The council has contributed to successful efforts to increase the number of students participating in MathCounts, provided engineering exhibits at the Science and Engineering Expo, and co-sponsored numerous STEM-related activities with our associated engineering and scientific societies.
EIEC, through involvement of active members from the various member societies, provides numerous opportunities to engineering and technology personnel throughout Eastern Idaho for “in the trenches” leadership and community support training.
