The Chinese Institute of Engineers (CIE) was first founded in 1917 in the United States by a group of able, dedicated and far-sighted Chinese engineers who were graduated from American colleges and were being trained in American railroads and industries. Today, members of CIE-USA/GNYC come from very diverse engineering disciplines : Telecommunication (Wireless Communication, Microelectronics, Optical Networking, ATM and IP Data Networking), Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Pharmaceutical industry, Software Engineering, and etc.

On July 15, 1953, the chapter in the United States was reactivated as an independent entity by itself known as CIE, New York. It was registered in the State of New York in 1963 as the Chinese Institute of Engineers, New York , Inc., and as a nonprofit organization. It is therefore tax-free. After the establishment of the National Council of CIE-USA in 1986, the name of CIE, New York was changed to the Greater New York Chapter of the Chinese Institute of Engineers – USA (CIE-USA/GNYC). CIE-USA celebrated its 80th anniversary during the 1997 annual convention in New Jersey. The total membership of CIE-USA, with its six chapters, is now close to 5,000. To know more about the charter and history of CIE-USA/GNYC, please see the articles in the Bylaws page and History page.
