Armenian Engineers and Scientists of America
The Armenian Engineers and Scientist of America, Inc. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles, California as a non-partisan, non-secterian and philanthropic organization to address the professional, technical and scientific needs of fellow Armenians throughout the world. AESA was incorporated in the State of California and recognized by the US Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit, educational and tax exempt institution in 1986.
After the devastating Spitak Earthquake in Armenia in December 1988, the focus of AESA turned to providing technical and other assistance to Armenia to help her recover from the catastrophe. AESA welcomed industrialists to the organization in 1989 and architects in 1994.
AESA objectives include the following:
- Technical and social interaction among Armenian engineers, scientists, industrialists and architects.
- Establishing communications and promoting technological exchange with experts in science, engineering, industry and architecture from Armenia.
- Dissemination of the knowledge of these fields.
- Conducting educational activities and assisting Armenian educational communities in these fields.
- Recognition of outstanding technical achievements by Armenian professionals.
