Engineering California

California is the epicenter of technological advancement. We have discovered how to harness the power of innovation to make people’s lives better. Engineering is at the heart of this progress. Whether designing high quality school facilities for kids, creating the nation’s first high speed rail system, or pioneering large-scale water conveyance systems, engineers help California thrive.

Who We Are

Engineering California is a project of the American Council of Engineering Companies, California, a recognized leader of efforts to improve infrastructure delivery systems – including transportation, water, and education – that are adequate to meet California’s present and future needs. Our members provide a wide variety of engineering, surveying, environmental consulting and construction management services for all types of residential, commercial, industrial, and public works projects.

Engineering California aims to increase the public’s awareness of how engineering is the heart of California’s economic and technological progress. Whether designing high quality school facilities for children, creating the nation’s first high speed rail system, or pioneering large-scale water conveyance systems, engineers help California thrive.

Engineering Excellence In California

Each year, ACEC California recognizes engineering and land surveying projects of exceptional achievement, awarding firms with ACEC California’s annual Engineering Excellence Awards. Entries are accepted into one of 12 project categories: studies, research and consulting engineering services; building/technology systems; structural systems; surveying and mapping technology; environmental; waste and storm water; water resources; transportation; special projects; small projects; energy; and industrial and manufacturing processes and facilities.

 

Because of their selection by the California Chapter, Honor Award winners are eligible to enter the national level Engineering Excellence Awards competition. In 2016, a California firm was recognized by ACEC National with the prestigious ‘Grand Conceptor’ Award for its innovative San Francisco Air Traffic Control Tower.
