As a Civil Engineering Student, professional contacts are vital to
the success in the engineering profession. Throughout your experience at
Texas Tech many opportunities will arise to join different
organizations. Networking through these organizations is an excellent
way to establish contacts with professional engineers. American Society
of Civil Engineers, ASCE, is a great way to make these contacts. We
invite an engineering firm to each of our meetings to give a
presentation, and to meet students.
The Texas Tech Chapter of ASCE is an engineering society aimed at helping engineering students network with established civil engineers. Throughout the year we also compete in several fun competitions such as the Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe Competitions. These competitions are a great way to get a fun, hands on experience with engineering projects. At these competitions, students are able to make professional contacts, meet other Civil Engineering Students from other schools, and learn more about engineering. We also perform various community service projects throughout the school year, giving students the chance to give back to their community. Our chapter also participates in philanthropy by volunteering at Dunbar Junior High. In addition to all of the other activities that ASCE participates in, we are also involved in Intramural sports.
As a Civil Engineering Student at Texas Tech University, there are several benefits for joining ASCE. As a member of ASCE, free food is provided at the beginning of every meeting. In your experience at Tech, you will find that school is easier when studying in groups; ASCE meetings are a great place to meet new friends to study with. Also, this year ASCE is offering a scholarship to a Civil Engineering student. Membership and attendance is required for the scholarship. ASCE is also a great organization to add to your resume; showing companies that you are actively involved in your school is of great worth.
The Texas Tech Chapter of ASCE is open to all grade levels of Civil Engineering. Membership requires full-time student status at Texas Tech, as well as a semester due of $5.00. The Texas Tech Chapter has approximately hour long meetings every other Thursdays at 5:00 pm. Signs are always posted in the Civil Engineering Building before the meetings.
We invite you to our meetings on Thursdays in CE room 205. We will provide free food and refreshment for those in attendance. Hope to see you there.
