The American Council of Engineering Companies of Pennsylvania (ACEC/PA) is the only association devoted exclusively to the promotion and enhancement of the business interests and profitability of engineering firms with offices in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Our goal is to enable member firms to provide quality engineering services in the best interest of their clients and the public.
ACEC/PA presents a strong, unified voice for the profession in state and local policy debates to help ensure those firms can compete fairly in an increasingly aggressive global market. ACEC/PA also maintains a close working relationship with state departments and agencies as rules, regulations and contracting principles are developed and adopted.
ACEC/PA today is the largest statewide organization of engineers engaged in the practice of consulting engineering. It is comprised of more than 13,000 employees representing over 125 independent engineering firms throughout the commonwealth. These firms employ engineers, land surveyors, scientists, technicians, or other professionals and administrative support personnel.
ACEC/PA’s member firms offer engineering expertise in a wide range of disciplines, including civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, environmental, industrial, surveying and mining. The firms range in size from a single professional engineer to corporations employing thousands of professionals with offices throughout the nation and the world.
Together with the American Council Engineering Companies (ACEC), ACEC/PA provides executives of private engineering firms with the tools and educational opportunities to be better business owners and managers.
