GOAL: CSPE provides outreach through community service Student & Youth programs such as Mathcounts and Student Engineer Programs
The CSPE Education Foundation (CSPEEF) is the fundraising arm of CSPE. As a fully-operational 501c(3) organization, CSPEEF helps sponsor MATHCOUNTS, the Ingersoll EIT Grants, and advocates construction and career technical education (CTE) in the classroom.
A complete resource of companies and institutions that provide review courses and materials for taking either the EIT or PE examination in California. Many of these companies also offer discounts to CSPE members.
CSPE provides grants to students interested in taking the California Engineer-in-Training (EIT or FE) examination, the first step on the road to becoming a Professional Engineer.
The Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS) is a national non-profit educational organization focuses on giving students an opportunity to explore engineering, assess their interests in the profession, and experience the career through real-world based competitions.
CSPE is committed to helping the profession of engineering through the sponsorship of California MATHCOUNTS, a junior high mathematics competition intended to increase the technical skills of California's youth. CSPE Sponsors 25 local competitions and two statewide competitions, influencing over 20,000 middle schoolers every year.
Information about NCEES, the nationwide organization comprised of the state engineering licensure boards that develops FE/EIT and PE licensure examinations.
The National Engineers Week Future® City Competition is an example of problem based learning with computer simulation. It is an integrated, multidisciplinary, holistic approach to relevant issues and is a strong example of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) education that addresses national and state academic content standards. The program asks 7th and 8th grade students from around the nation to team with engineer-volunteer mentors to create — first on computer and then in large, three-dimensional models — their visions of the city of tomorrow.
The NSPE Student page helps high school and college students learn about engineering, particularly about becoming a professional engineer and receiving scholarships through NSPE.
ZOOM into Engineering is a CSPE project designed to excite kids about engineering by combining enthusiastic volunteers with the fun, kid-tested, engineering activities from the hit PBS television show ZOOM.
