There are many opportunities to participate in the professional activities and meetings of ASCE nationally and regionally, meet practicing engineers, hear about major ongoing projects, and begin to take steps towards a successful career in civil engineering while still here at OSU. Professional development is a key factor in your ongoing success as a practicing engineer.  There are also a number of other professional organizations to consider, such as the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and the Structural Engineers Association of Oregon (SEAO).

There are monthly meetings that you are always welcome to attend, and almost always at a reduced price for students:
