Student Activities

  • Student ActivitiesThe Foundation supports critical ASCE programs for Student members. These hands-on, real-world learning experiences help ASCE Student Members gain knowledge outside of the classroom, develop leadership skills, engage in networking opportunities and prepare for a successful Civil Engineering career. 

    With generous gifts from ASCE members, the ASCE Foundation supports the Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) Student Design Competition, National Concrete Canoe Competition, CI Student Days and student conferences across the United States!

    National Concrete Canoe Competition

    For over 30 years, students’ efforts to combine engineering excellence and hydrodynamic design to construct water-worthy canoes have culminated in an advanced form of concrete construction and racing technique known as the “America’s Cup of Civil Engineering.” 

    Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders

    The Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) is a training session for new student officers in ASCE Student Chapters. The WSCL is sponsored by the Committee on Student Members (CSM)—the national committee that oversees all ASCE Student Organization activities.

    ASCE Student Conferences

    Nineteen ASCE Student Conferences are held every spring, each including a business meeting; Professional/technical presentations; and Competitions (surveying, technical paper presentations, Concrete Canoe). 

    AEI Student Design Competition

    The AEI Student Design Competition was established in 2010 as an annual event, specifically for the architectural engineering programs to showcase the value of collaboration, competition, and peer review, all of which are important in the development of designs in the professional world. Congratulations to the 2019 AEI Student Design Competition winners!  

    CI Student Days 

    CI Student Days events give students the information and tools they need to stand out in a competitive job market while providing engineering recruiters with unique opportunities to get up close and personal with a stellar pool of candidates. Your gift will help support the highly successful CI Student Days program.
