About Us

The American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina (ACEC/NC) is the sole organization in North Carolina that represents the business interests of the engineering industry in our state. ACEC/NC also provides legislative advocacy for member companies and strives to build relationships between the private and public sectors of the engineering industry. Council members – over 200 firms throughout the state – are engaged in a wide range of engineering projects that propel the economy and enhance and safeguard our state’s quality of life. These projects allow our citizens to drink clean water, enjoy a healthy life, take advantage of new technologies, and travel safely and efficiently.

Nationally, ACEC’s roots date back to 1909 when a loosely-organized group of engineers in private practice established the American Institute of Consulting Engineers (AICE), the forerunner of ACEC. Now ACEC is a federation of 52 state and regional councils representing the great breadth of America’s engineering industry.

ACEC/NC was founded in 1969. Today member firms employ more than 10,000 engineers, architects, land surveyors, scientists, and other specialists who are responsible for many millions of private and public projects annually.  Member firms range in size from a single registered professional engineer to corporations employing thousands of professionals.
