Separate from the Foundation, the Club provides a comfortable environment for the
interchange of ideas, to enhance the professional success of members and to help
solve community problems. You can learn more at the Club’s website and Engineers
Engineering & Science Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding scientists and engineers who have made significant
contributions benefiting humanity. Over the years it has enshrined 50 men and women,
including 9 Nobel Laureates. A gallery of enshrinees lines the east wing hallway
on the first floor of the Engineers Club. The Hall of Fame works to foster an understanding
of these major contributions, to encourage careers in engineering and science, and
to maintain an archive to support continuing education.
Engineering & Science Foundation of Dayton
The ESF works to raise awareness of engineering and science, and to build interest
in science and math among our K-12 youth. Current education projects involve ThinkTV,
the Boonshoft Museum, DTMA Bots IQ, and the STEM Academy. Three Technical Groups
focus on Environmental, Structural, and Geotechnical Engineering.
The Affiliates Societies Council of Dayton hosts the local technical societies, and
assists in the professional development and recognition of engineers and scientists
in the community. Located directly east of the Engineers Club, the Council presents
yearly Outstanding Engineer and Scientist Awards and helps organize the annual TechFest
for K-12 students. Their website features extensive links for STEM education (Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math).
