What are PICs and Divisions?

Divisions connect you to other members by your Professional Interests

ASEE offers over fifty Divisions and constituent committees that span a wide variety of interests and highlight the breadth of opportunities available to you as an ASEE member. Members are invited to affiliate with any of these special interest groups, and to take an active part in their work.

The professional interests of the Society are many and varied. Individual members may become members of and participate in the activities of any division they wish, of which no more than six (6) may have no annual dues associated with them. 

PICs are leadership groups that preside over Divisions

All divisions are grouped into five Professional Interest Councils (PICs), each reporting to a chairman who is a member of the Board of Directors. The responsibilities of these units are:

  • To provide a formal organizational structure to promote, encourage, and facilitate activities pertaining to their areas of interest;
  • To provide forums for discussion and exchange of information about problems and experiences;
  • To coordinate the professional interests of individual members and to speak on their behalf; and
  • To establish and maintain a liaison with other organizations concerned with these areas of interest.The professional interests of the Society are many and varied. Individual members may become members of and participate in the activities of any division they wish, of which no more than six (6) may have no annual dues associated with them.

Professional Interest Councils By-Laws

Article I: PURPOSE

Section 1.
The purpose of ASEE Professional Interest Councils (PICs) are to serve as the broad focal point for interaction between educators of engineers, engineering technologists, industry or government, and represent their common interests on the ASEE Board of Directors.

Section 2.
The primary objectives of the PICs are to:
a. Establish and maintain liaison with other organizations concerned with professional and technical education.
b. Provide a formal organizational structure to promote, encourage, and facilitate ASEE activities pertaining to professional and technical education.
c. Provide a forum for the discussion of problems and exchange of information pertaining to professional and technical education related to engineering and engineering technology.
d. Identify mutual interests to serve as a basis for cooperation among education, industry, and government.
e. Assess and recommend the establishment of methods and practices affecting the education of engineers and engineering technologists.
f. Encourage close relationships among all individuals from academia, industry, and government engaged in engineering and engineering technology through the organization of programs of mutual interest at ASEE conferences (e.g., ASEE Annual Conference, mini Conferences sponsored by one or more Divisions, ASEE Section conferences).
g. Provide programs at meetings.
h. Actively support ASEE through promotion of individual memberships as well as educational, industrial, and governmental institutional members in the Society.

Section 3.
The Professional Interest Councils are committed to fostering collaborative and inclusive environments that value equity and celebrate diversity. The Professional Interest Councils commit to ensuring that we continually challenge ourselves to deepen and broaden our understanding of inequities, so that we are prepared to take action to transform our Councils, ASEE, our institutions, universities, and the whole of the engineering community. More information can be found on ASEE’s Statement on Diversity and Inclusiveness at https://diversity.asee.org/about/ and the ASEE SEFI Joint Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. (https://diversity.asee.org/wpcontent/uploads/2020/05/ASEE-SEFI_DEIStatement.pdf)

The division provides a vital forum for those interested in the research and practice of systems engineering education. We promote systems engineering to meet complex and global challenges through transdisciplinary infusion of systems thinking, systems science and systems engineering principles throughout engineering education. We strive to educate current and future practitioners on applying systems approaches to socio-technical systems, emerging technologies, and global challenges.

This group serves as a forum for those seeking to improve the broad understanding of all types of technology by all Americans. Technology affects nearly every aspect of modern life yet few people, including engineers, understand the technologies we use every day, or recognize the complex interactions between society and technology. How can educators facilitate a broad technological understanding? The committee aims to promote vigorous debate and is devoted to achieving progress on these issues. Both engineers and non-engineers are welcome to participate.

The Two-Year College division was established by the ASEE Board of Directors in 1992, in recognition of the important role played by two-year programs in the engineering education pipeline. The primary role of the division is to focus on those engineering and engineering technology education issues that are important (and, in some cases, unique) to community colleges, junior colleges, 3 + 2 programs, two-year technical institutes, and other two-year programs.
