OCEC Liaison Committee

Orange County Engineering Council


Mission Statement

To enhance the public image of engineers and scientists and promote the interaction of professional societies and engineering/scientific corporations and universities in Orange County California. 


OCEC does not compete with these organizations but rather provides a forum to develop synergy between them.

The Orange County Engineering Council (OCEC) is an umbrella organization representing the engineering and related scientific societies  and corporations in Orange County, California. It is a non-profit organization, supported entirely by voluntary contributions from scientific and  engineering  societies  and corporations practicing in Orange County


The efforts of OCEC include but are not limited to the following:

  •  Honor the  outstanding  projects  and  achievements of engineers,  related scientists and their corporations in Orange County during the National Engineers Week in February.
  •  Organize a Leaders  Night  dinner  for  officers  of  the  Orange  County  professional societies,  technological  corporations and universities to promote networking and professionalism.
  •  Offer scholarships to outstanding educational institutions (K – university) through the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program.
  •  Support  the Future Scientists and Engineers of America (FSEA) and Mathematics,  Engineering and Science Achievement  (MESA) programs both  in high school and university levels.
  •  Participate in the Orange County Science Fair and present awards to the outstanding student projects selected by the OCEC Board.
  •  Introduce prospective interns to the Orange County engineering and scientific corporations.
  •  Operate a website on the Internet and disseminate the OCEC information and programs to the membership  (http://www.ocec.org).   Publish  the  directory  and  profiles  of  the sponsoring professional  societies and engineering/related scientific corporations on our web page.


As a professional society operating in Orange County, OCEC welcomes the professional societies and corporations in Orange County to become members and to actively participate  in the Board meetings and nominate worthy candidates and projects  for suitable awards at the National Engineers Week awards banquet.
