American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
The American Society of Civil Engineers is America's oldest national engineering society, having been a chapter since 1852.
Trine University's chapter has been in existence since 1965, supporting the aims of the national organization - to "develop leadership, advance technology, advocate lifelong learning, and promote the profession." In pursuit of these goals, ASCE student members participate in a wide range of activities. Signature projects include the steel bridge, concrete canoe, and concrete baseball bat competitions.
Additionally, service projects such as our 5th grade engineering outreach, allow the organization to promote civil engineering while giving back to the community. ASCE also strives for professionalism, and field trips such as the Ohio Contractor for a day event and the yearly ASCE Indiana Section meeting.
