American Society of Civil Engineers, CWRU Student Chapter

American Society of Civil Engineers, CWRU Student Chapter

The Case Western Reserve University student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers is a student version of the national American Society of Civil Engineers. Our mission is to provide essential value to our members, their engineering education, their careers, our partners and the public by developing leadership, advancing technology, advocating lifelong learning and promoting the profession to civil engineering students at Case Western Reserve University.

At the chapter's bi-monthly meetings, practicing professionals, many of whom are alumni, come to talk to students about their careers and the projects they are working on. Students also get a chance to ask any questions they may have about what is going on in industry.

Additionally, students participate in various community service and outreach events geared at exposing kids to engineering, an annual career fair and some social events geared towards mixing Case, CSU, and the Younger Society-Level Members of ASCE.
