The University of Cincinnati student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has earned the ASCE Distinguished Chapter Award for its region for the second consecutive year. The 2020 award is based on the 2019 Annual Reports. 

ASCE has a long history at UC – 2020 marks the group’s centennial. The UC chapter has about 130 student members who have an interest in civil engineering. Through site visits, on-campus meetings with local professional engineers and networking events, the organization helps give students a glimpse into potential career paths in civil engineering

“The purpose is to be a bridge between the academic and professional worlds,” said Mihali Sevastakis, civil engineering student and UC ASCE chapter president.

Members have the opportunity to volunteer with groups like Habitat for Humanity and compete in concrete canoe and balsa wood bridge building competitions.
