The American Society of Certified Engineering Technicians (ASCET) is the only national, professional society created especially for, and administered by, engineering technicians and technologists in all engineering disciplines. On April 3, 1964, approximately seventy certified engineering technicians representing seventeen states attended an organizational meeting sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). At this meeting, ASCET was formed to pursue the concept of an "engineering team", and other mutual goals of engineering professionals.
With the introduction of the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (BET) and technologist certification programs, ASCET membership was extended to Certified Engineering Technologists as well. In July, 1981, the ASCET Board of Directors voted to allow Regular membership to all engineering technicians and technologists who, although not certified, possess all other Society qualifications. At the request of several Registered Professional Engineers who wished to join, the Registered Member category with full privileges was added in 1991.
The American Society of Certified Engineering Technicians provides opportunities for technicians and technologists to magnify their status as vital members of the engineering team.
