Welcome to "The Modesto Engineers Club"

We meet monthly at Old Mill Cafe in Modesto, CA. (September meeting will be located at Solid Networks in Salida, CA)

"The object of this club, primarily, is to provide an organization in which the Engineers of all branches of the profession may come together, and through which they may cooperate and foster fellowship and the development of the engineering profession, and promote the participation of the engineering profession in public affairs and community welfare." - MEC Bylaws

If you're a guest we welcome you to attend one of our monthly meetings. Check out our latest newsletter we call field notes for more information.

November 2017 Speaker


Speaker:  Des Orsinelli, Brown and Caldwell

Topic:  Estimating for Engineers (and everyone else)

Speaker Info:
More information coming soon in the November Field Notes.

This presentation provides groundwork on how planning through final engineering estimates are generated.  It’s a great tune-up for estimators, and provides insight for non-estimators too.  For example, attendees will learn where to go online for free and accurate labor rates and equipment rental rates.  In addition, methodology for creating planning level estimates will be shared - including equipment factoring and the “0.6 power rule”.  Students will hence better understand the anatomy of an engineering estimate.

Scholarship Fund

For many years our Club has provided a scholarship to a deserving Modesto Junior College student.  The opportunity to donate to this fund is always available and encouraged.  Your Membership Application has a provision to donate $5 (or other amount) to this fund.  Please consider donating to this important endeavour.  Thank you to all who give generously to promote our future engineers.
