For over 100 years the Engineer’s Club of Kansas City has provided fellowship for engineers and a vehicle to perpetuate our profession through engineering scholarships to area students. The importance of our mission is evident by the many companies and individuals that participate in our ECKC scholarship fundraisers. Please join us to support the engineering profession.
Our Student Assistance Fund supports undergraduate students from the KC metro area that are pursuing an ABET accredited engineering degree. This past year we distributed $66,500 in scholarships to 68 students. The premier fundraising events of ECKC have been Shrimp Bingo, Fall Golf Outing (TopGolf) and our Spring Golf Outing. NOTE: DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID-19 PANDEMIC THESE EVENTS HAVE BEEN EITHER POSTPONED OR CANCELLED FOR THE 2020-2021 CLUB YEAR.
The Club also holds a monthly luncheon for networking, professional development and fellowship. The luncheon offers 0.5 PDH for presentations on a variety of topics of interest to the engineering community. Please check this website (eclubofkc.org) for updates, or if you would like to be added to our email list, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
