OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Welcome to the Oregon State University Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers!

 

 

 

The OSU Student Chapter of ASCE organizes a wide range of activities including speaker meetings, field trips, community service projects, and participates in competitive projects, such as the concrete canoe, steel bridge and timber bridge contests. These activities are excellent opportunities to gain hands-on experience and build relationships that cannot be found in the classroom. Activities are also meant to be fun and give students a break from typical schoolwork. Many opportunities are provided to begin to build networks with engineering professionals and explore career options in civil engineering. 

 The 2015 Annual Report is out now. Click Here to take a look at what ASCE has been doing throughout the past year.

  • Steel Bridge: 2nd Place Overall, qualifying the team for nationals in Kansas City, MO in May. See full results here.
  • Concrete Canoe: 2nd Place Overall (among 12 teams)
    - 1st Place in Oral Presentation; 2nd in Technical Paper; 3rd Place in Final Product; 2nd Place in Women’s Sprint; 2nd Place in Women’s Endurance Race
  • Technical Paper on Engineering Ethics and Engineering Liability for Construction Failures: 3rd Place
  • Environmental Competition: 2nd Place
  • Food Drive and Sculpture: 3rd Place

OSU ASCE is very thankful for the support of the School of CCE, College of Engineering and a number of industry supporters!
