Announcement and News
The association was founded in 1962 as "Chinese Engineers' Club of Southern California". The name was changed to "Chinese-American Engineers and Scientists Association of Southern California" in 1968. Its mission is to serve as a platform to enrich their competence through technical conferences and workshops, to showcase their accomplishments through its annual Achievement Awards, to broaden their career perspectives through global and local networking, and to protect their interests and rights through organizational efforts. In 2011, CESASC was honored by the Chinese American Museum (CAM) as the recipient of the Excellence in Science and Engineering Leadership Award in CAM’s 15th Annual History maker’s Awards Ceremony.
Since 1969, CESASC has presented Achievement Awards to recognize the individuals who have made significant contributions to engineering and science, or those with distinguished professional career in the United States. Our previous award recipients included Nobel Laureates, members of US National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine, Corporate and University executives, members of Committee 100, as well as public officials.

協會也曾主辦青少年科工計畫競賽和學生科研成果展。今年9月才洛杉磯加大聯合主辦「奈米材料和應用元件國際研討會」。 為鼓勵青少年參與，年會固定頒發五至十名獎學金，獲獎者均為大學部或研究所的學生，也在科技研討會中發表演說。1986年獎學金得主廖敏妃，已成為洛杉磯加大醫學院副教授和神經外科醫師，獲得2006年的成就獎，成為協會鼓勵青年參與和發展的例證。圖為科工會創始人戚文祥 (Henry Chi) 和夫人王樂爾（Lois W. Chi）在學會50週年年會領獎台上。
