The American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1852 as an engineering society that encompassed many fields of engineering. Many other disciplines later formed their own societies further defining ASCE as a society specific to those who practice civil engineering.

The professional organization currently represents more than 144,000 professional and student members. Here at Rutgers, we hope to encourage all engineering students to benefit from the association and experience of those professionals who have been practicing civil engineering long before us.
