Promoting and Celebrating Engineering in Rochester 

Serving the Rochester Community for over 125 years!     
  • Home


Founded in 1897, the RES is a multi-disciplinary society uniting diverse disciplines to enhance professional development, foster excitement in math and science for the next generation of leaders, and improve communities where members live. The Society supports individual engineers, local affiliates of national engineering societies, schools of engineering, and professional firms. The RES provides many opportunities to learn, to build relationships and to contribute to the community.

The RES encourages and recognizes innovation, cooperation, professional growth and fellowship, in all levels of development, from student to seasoned engineers, scientists and allied professionals.

The RES is recognized as the principal leader committed to increasing the visibility of the greater Rochester area engineering and technical community, serving as a unifying organization for local engineering businesses and associations. 

Our Monthly publication of the Rochester Engineer disseminates what the RES and our affiliates have planned for their members. Please be sure to check it out and attend a meeting or program for networking!

Help support the RES and its mission!
