Welcome to the Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC) web site. We hope this web site will be useful for member societies or others trying to get information about engineering activities in the Puget Sound area.


PSEC is an organization comprised of the local chapters of national or international engineering and scientific societies in the Puget Sound area. PSEC exists to increase public awareness and appreciation of engineering, science and technology.

The overall goals of PSEC are to:

  • Inform the public on technical matters
  • Advance the interests of the member societies it represents as well as those of the larger engineering and scientific community
  • Reflect the technical concerns of these societies and of this community

To help foster the mission and goals of PSEC, the organization sponsors several annual events including:
