ABOUT US:   The Engineers' Club of Memphis, organized on May 8, 1914, is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical, and nonprofit society whose objectives and purposes are to promote the educational and professional improvement of its members, to advance the field of engineering in its several branches, to make available to the general public technical and scientific information and knowledge, and generally to aid in the solution of public questions involving engineering and scientific problems. In the furtherance of these goals, the Club strives through its various committees to develop and plan ongoing educational programs, seminars, symposiums, professional tours, and other technically oriented meetings, events and projects.

MISSION:   It is the mission of the Engineers' Club to promote the educational, social and professional advancement of its members; to assist community leaders, civic organizations and public agencies by providing advice on and giving support to issues which benefit the Memphis community and to acting as liaison between the Club's many affiliated societies.

The meeting begins at 12:00 noon and the presentation begins at approximately 12:10.


Mike Oakes The Club mournes the loss of former member Michael Oakes. Mike passed away on October 15, 2019. He was born on January 10, 1946. He was born in Fayette, Alabama and grew up in Memphis earning his BS in Engineering from Memphis State University and his Masters Degree from the University of California, Berkley in 1982. He served in the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps until 1992. He was the Shelby County Engineer for eleven years and later served as Director of Public Works at Russellville Arkansas. He brought touches of artistry to what are usually boring civil works projects. He was an active member of the Club since 1999 and promoted the Club membership to his colleagues. He will be sorely missed. Go in peace, Mike. Go in peace.
