Welcome
What is ASCE?
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Chapter at the University of Central Florida is the largest engineering organization on campus. Our main goal is to ensure that our club properly prepares students for their professional careers. In order to further develop our members we have several events and competitions we participate in. Our biggest event is the ASCE annual student conference where we compete against other southeastern engineering schools for a chance to go to the national level. Last year we placed 3rd overall at the regional conference and are striving for first place this year. As Civil Engineers we understand that our mission is to make the world a better place. Last year alone our members logged over 750 community service hours! This year we plan to continue with our high level of community involvement.

General Meetings
Our next club meeting will be February 19th in MSB 360 at 7:30pm. At our meetings we invite industry professionals to speak to students about engineering in the workforce, internships, resume building, networking, and much more. Don't forget as always free pizza!

Affiliated Organizations
Associated Builders and Contractors - UCF Student Chapter
The Purpose of the Central Florida Student Chapter is to branch the understanding gap between perspectives and methods as it is seen and performed in the industry, compared to how learned in the collegiate / academic world. By doing this we will be preparing the up-and-coming engineers to a more realistic understanding of how the industry operates while leaning how to maximize the knowledge/concepts learned in the classroom. ABC Through various events such as Student competitions, monthly networking events, jobsite visits along with potential scholarships & Fellowships, just to name a few, allow great exposure for us students to actively participate with alumni, leaders in the industry, faculty as well as many more.
