Biography/Profile

The student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers at Iowa State University was formed in 1909. The organization provides learning, leadership, and networking opportunities for civil engineering students at Iowa State by hosting and sponsoring speaker presentations, outreach events, and social activities. ASCE student members are also able to participate in two competitive team activities: the steel bridge team and the concrete canoe team. Initially membership was offered to both faculty and students, but has since evolved into a solely student run organization that works closely with faculty in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering.
