Welcome to the Florida Tech Chapter of ASCE
News and Progress
2015-2016 was a time period of growth and learning for our chapter, as we elected our youngest officer team ever, and had some older members leave us for the real world. However, even though all the trials and setback, the Florida Tech ASCE Chapter set itself apart by producing outstanding projects under high pressure. We placed 1st in the Regional Surveying competition, and competed in every single small-teams competition at the Regional Conference. Florida Tech has had a history of winning and competing at the regional andnational level, something we wish to continue. In the last 23 years, this team has made it to the national level seven times, and has taken one of the top six positions four of the seven times.
The Florida Tech American Society of Civil Engineering is one of the active members of the Florida Tech community. The typically chapter year involves two major construction projects; the concrete canoe and steel bridge, as well as about 15 smaller projects and several community service and community outreach projects.
Our organization is devoted to introducing Civil Engineering students, as well as all other disciplined scholars to a competitive and educational environment, focused on learning the technical and team working skills needed to be successful in the professional workplace. ASCE's mission is to help develop and challenge young engineers to help them better achieve later in life, and to allow them return to make a positive impact on the next generation of students.
Our faculty advisor is; Dr. Nakin Suksawang, PE. He works closely alongside the students to make ASCE one of the most successful organizations on campus.
ASCE Student Chapters
There are currently over two hundred ASCE student chapters and clubs throughout the college campuses of the nation. To help prepare future engineers for their careers, each chapter sponsors meetings, regional conferences, student competitions, and other activities. Many scholarships and awards are also available for outstanding civil engineering students.
Florida Tech’s ASCE Student Chapter
Florida Tech's ASCE student chapter is a very active organization. Thirty undergraduate and graduate students work together on various local and national projects; most prominently the Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge Competitions. These students elect officers who oversee the organization’s activities.The ASCE Southeastern Student Conference is the highlight of the year for Florida Tech. The ASCE southeastern region encompasses nearly thirty of the nation’s finest civil engineering programs from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. This year the Southeastern Conference was held in Tuscaloosa, Alabama at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide).
