Chinese Institute of Engineers Centennial (1917 - 2017)
Celebrating a Century of Scientific Innovation and Technological Achievement by Chinese Engineers
The Chinese Institute of Engineers (CIE) was founded in 1917 by a group of Chinese engineers who had studied in the United States. Our mission is to promote the communication among Chinese engineers and the advancement of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Over the past century, CIE has held or co-sponsored many important events, such as the Asian American Engineer of the Year (AAEOY) Award, Modern Engineering and Technology Seminar (METS), and Sino-American Technology and Engineering Conference (SATEC). On October 14, 2017, we will celebrate our Centennial at the picturesque HNA Palisades Premier Conference Center in Rockland County, New York. If you would like to sponsor or participate in this once-in-a-lifetime event, please contact the CIE Centennial Planning Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
