What is the Fort Wayne Engineers’ Club? The Fort Wayne Engineers’ Club is an organization composed of a broad cross section of engineers and associates from Fort Wayne, Allen County and the surrounding area.
The Club’s objectives are:
- The advancement of the arts and sciences connected with engineering by presentation and discussion of subjects, and by the participation in matters of interest to the engineering profession.
- To advance the interest of individual members and to enhance the prestige of the professional within the community.
- To promote closer union and cooperation among the members by professional and social contact.
