We know that the world and profession are rapidly changing, presenting civil engineers with new challenges. But how aware are we of the new and innovative technologies, materials, tools and techniques that are keeping pace with this change? As stewards of infrastructure, civil engineers are entrusted to protect the public and ensure our built environment is safe, sustainable and resilient, harmonizing with the natural environment to serve current and future generations.

Today’s brisk changes coincide opportunely with a uniquely prepared and eager millennial civil engineering workforce. But every engineer, regardless of career stage, must remain current – must continuously learn and grow in their profession. In the midst of change and our enormous responsibility for it, ASCE is the society that serves civil engineers’ individual comprehensive technical and professional development needs. ASCE offers benefits that are truly a mile wide and a mile deep, covering the full breadth and depth of civil engineering with nine specialty institutes, while at the same time providing both local engagement, training and networking as well as a global perspective and reach.

As a member, you’re already ahead of the curve. The Society’s tools and resources are helping civil engineers succeed in the workplace. You can easily tap into educational resources provided exclusively to members, like 10 Free PDHs, ELearning Webinars, AccessEngineering, “Civil Engineering” and other magazines, newsletters, weekly ASCE and public policy briefings, daily industry news updates and discounts on continuing education, conferences and the ASCE Library.

Or reach out to your network of 150,000 civil engineers and connect via ASCE Collaborate or ASCE Mentor Match, or join your preferred Institutes or local Sections, Branches, Younger Member Groups or Student Chapters for additional programs and activities. Beyond just technical and professional resources and networking, ASCE gives you the chance to volunteer, advocate, advance your profession and make a difference.

There’s so much that goes into being a civil engineer. It’s about staying current, being up to date with trends and always being a lifelong learner. ASCE will get you off to the right start and enable you to continuously grow, develop and matter more.
