What our Annual Conference Looks Like - a Lookback on the 2016 Conference

CIE is the oldest and most prestigious Chinese-American engineers association in the U.S. It was founded in 1917 in New York by a group of Chinese engineers and engineering students then studying and training in the U.S. Among the elders of this organization was Yale-educated Zhan Tian-You, who led the design and building of Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railroad in 1905. This railroad was the first railroad in China that was completely built by a Chinese engineering team. The CIE/USA – San Francisco Bay Area Chapter (CIE/USA-SF) was established in 1979 and Dr. Ta-Lin Hsu served as the founding president.  CIE/USA-SF is a non-profit and non-political organization serving engineers and students in San Francisco Bay Area enginnering community.  The missions of CIE/USA-SF are to promote technological advancement, networking, and communicating among engineers and scientists, and to promote well-being of engineering community.
