Tulsa Engineering Foundation

Tulsa Engineering Foundation is a foundation of engineering societies and universities/colleges, formed to assist in coordinating activities and services for the member societies and to promote science, math and engineering in the community.  It is a not-for-profit charitable organization, with the mission of serving the engineering profession and offering career guidance activities to our youth. Currently twenty engineering/technical organizations are members as well as seven universities and colleges.  Link to Member Organizations. Check the calendar for member society meetings and events.  Most are open to the public.

Rick G. Petricek, Jr.    The Tulsa Engineering Foundation, and the entire engineering community, is mourning the loss of a great member of our professional community. Rick was a Trustee and currently Vice President of TEF, and as mentioned in the obituary link, an avid contributor in so many ways to our outreach to youth. Note that the family recommends donations in lieu of flowers to a scholarship being established in Rick’s memory at OSU.  Richard G. Petricek, Jr. Scholarship – osugiving.com/petricek
