The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is the oldest National Engineering Society in the United States. Founded in 1852, the society was created to disseminate information among engineers who are building the roads, canals, bridges, railroads, and buildings.
Educational activities extend to college campuses through 272 student chapters, clubs, and international student groups. These groups sponsor meetings, educational outreach, regional conferences, student competitions, social events and other activities to help future engineers become better prepared for their careers. Numerous scholarships and awards are made available for deserving civil engineering students.
Our fundamental goal as a student chapter is to engage in the modern world of civil engineering and all that it encompasses: working for the public good through innovation and networking.
We get Civil Engineering students involved with their career path before graduation. Many of our activities embrace the engineering field, offering a hands-on experience for students. We encourage our members to network with their fellow classmates and professionals by creating events and providing job/internship opportunities.
