Science can amuse and fascinate us all, but it is engineering that changes the world.
— Isaac Asimov

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), founded by civil engineers for civil engineers in 1852, is a dynamic member-driven organization dedicated to the advancement of the profession. Through the dedicated volunteer service of its members, the ASCE has become the world's largest engineering society, with over 133,000 members.

The ASCE New Jersey Section and its Branches share the vision of the society, but on a local level. We organize social and community service events, plan seminars, talks and presentations to educate ourselves and the community; and disseminate information on scholarships, fellowships and competitions. Our activities are open to all in the civil engineering community, and we welcome seasoned professionals, recent graduates, professors, students (both undergraduate and graduate), lecturers and anybody else who might be interested in participating, including those in allied disciplines.
