The World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) was created in 1968 with the support of the United Nations Environmental, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Its objectives, stated in its Constitution, are to work with Members: to encourage the application of engineering and technological advancement to economic and social progress throughout the world; to advance engineering as an equal opportunity profession in the interest of all people; and to foster peace throughout the world.
The U.S. National Member of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) is the American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES). AAES has delegated daily oversight of the AAES participation in WFEO to its Working Group, International Activities Committee (IntAC). IntAC has subsequently created the WFEO Task Group as a subsidiary of IntAC to directly manage WFEO participation. The WFEO Task Group is comprised only of Member Societies of AAES who have chosen to participate.

- American Institute of Mining Engineers — AIME
- American Institute of Chemical Engineers — AIChE
- American Society of Civil Engineers — ASCE
