GEAR Platform Release

March 30, 2020

NAESC is excited to release its General Engineering Association Resource (GEAR) platform, a members-only site to connect the NAESC community, share ideas through a community-wide forum, and much more. Sign up today!

The National Association of Engineering Student Councils seeks to:

Advocate for engineering students and schools across the nation.

Collaborate with councils to learn how to serve students.

 Lead and develop skills to become a well-rounded engineer.

Who is NAESC?

250,000 Engineering Undergraduates

65+ Universities

100s of Student Leaders


Every year, NAESC holds ELS, the Engineering Leadership Summit, where representatives from all member schools meet to network, vote on NAESC policy, and experience the events and sights of the host school.

Engineering Leadership Summit

NAESC is always working toward providing an online space for members to connect, share ideas, and learn from each other. In the spring of 2019, we released a Wiki to members only which contains all of our national resources as well as a community section where schools will share event plans and ideas. In addition to the wiki, our technical team is developing a platform tentatively known as "GEAR", a social media platform and directory for NAESC schools, leaders, and undergraduate members.

Member Resources

In 2018, NAESC applied to join the ABET accreditation board. We are currently working with the organizations: BEST (Board of European Students of Technology), CFES (Canadian Federation of Engineering Students), and 'bonding' (our German counterpart). NAESC will also become a founding member of the international organization to promote engineering.


As a member school, you will be invited to attend one of our five regional conferences that take place every fall. A regional conference is a smaller representation of our national conference and will be hosted at a school in your area. The greatest impact of our regional conference is connecting nearby engineering schools who support each others' events & operations.

Regional Conferences
