Gifts from ASCE members enable the ASCE Foundation to support a full suite of ASCE educational programs. These programs support civil engineers working to inspire current and future civil engineers.
ASCE educational programs and are designed to encourage civil engineers to play a central role in their community and to provide opportunities for hands-on experiences and exploration of engineering. The Foundation continued supporting the ExCEEd teaching workshops, provides educational grants to four Student Members to attend ASCE’s Convention, and ASCE scholarships were provided from funds endowed by ASCE members through the Foundation.
Excellence in Civil Engineering Education (ExCEEd) Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. ASCE has successfully presented this workshop each summer for the past nineteen years. Faculty members across the country and around the world have benefited from this workshop. Your generous support helps fund this important program. In 2018, Foundation donors helped support 70 civil, architectural and construction engineering faculty and 36 mentors and assistant mentors.
Vilas Mujumdar, D.P.A., P.E., S.E., F.SEI, Dist.M.ASCE and his wife Ingrid Mujumdar, established Risk and Resiliency Registration Assistance funding for students with a generous gift to the Foundation. This is a competitive application program for students who are interested in risk and resiliency policy and its impact on communities. 2019 student applicants are encouraged to apply by June 14, 2019. Registration Assistance will be provided for the International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure.
In 2018, The Foundation presented the Vilas & Ingrid Mujumdar Risk and Resiliency Registration Assistance Grant to four ASCE Student Members based on their interest in and knowledge of risk and resiliency in the built environment. This grant covered each student’s ASCE Convention registration fee and some travel expenses.
With generous support from ASCE members and their families, endowed scholarships through the ASCE Foundation provide tuition assistance for ASCE Student Members.
All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of ingenuity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative, and amazing ways. Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a giant-screen film about engineering, takes viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audiences witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.
Dream Big, presented by Bechtel and produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in partnership with ASCE with support from the ASCE Foundation had another stellar year in 2018. Thanks to your continued support, Dream Big was:
