The Association of Korean-Canadian Scientists and Engineers (AKCSE) was established in 1986 as a non-profit professional organization and has grown to over 3,000 registered members with 11 Local Chapters, 17 School Chapters, 8 Young Professional Societies, Science & Engineering/Industrial Specialty Groups, and 4 Professional Societies across Canada. The association is young with roughly half of its members in their 20s and growing today faster than ever. We have been active in promoting young Koreans to develop their professional career by holding annual competition in math and science from grade 4 to 11, sending young engineers and scientists to Young Generation Forum in Korea, awarding scholarship to undergraduate and graduate students, and supporting regional groups of young professionals.

Our organization fosters friendship among members, encourages and supports more young Koreans and Korean-Canadians to advance in science and technology field of mainstream society, and contributes to development of science, technology and industrial economy in Republic of Korea and Canada.
