Conferences / Professional Growth

OSU ASCE provides several opportunities for professional growth and networking with professionals and other students, including the following:

ASCE Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (location varies each year on the west coast - Bellevue, WA in 2015)
This workshop introduces future ASCE student leaders to the national ASCE organization, and provides lots of guidance on how to manage a student chapter. Students meet professionals and other students from all over the western portion of the US.

Meet-A-Civil Engineer Day
The goal of Meet-A-Civil Engineer Day is to provide a venue for students and professionals to get to know each other in a more casual environment than typical career fairs. This event includes casual dining, presentations, and mingling opportunities for all interested students.

ASCE Pacific Northwest Student Conference (location varies - Idaho State in 2015)
Students from all engineering universities in the Pacific Northwest meet annually to participate in various competitions and activities, including the Steel Bridge Competition and Concrete Canoe Competition.

Order of the Engineer Ceremony (OSU)
This annual ceremony is organized by the chapter for the entire OSU College of Engineering to encourage professionalism and ethics among graduating seniors, featuring new member induction and speakers.  There were 48 inductees in 2014.

Mentors 360
Each year, the Mentors 360 group comes to OSU and a panel of speakers talks to students about their careers, ethical practice and what the profession is really about. Small groups are formed after the presentations to answer questions. The speakers offer to provide individual mentoring to students as well.
