ASCE Student Organization Wins Honorable Mention

ASCE Student Organization

May 1, 2020 – UC Irvine’s American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student organization received a letter of honorable mention from the national ASCE Committee on Student Members for its outstanding activities. The recognition noted the enthusiasm and hard work of student officers and members as well as the fine guidance from its faculty adviser.

ASCE is a professional organization that serves as a bridge between academia and industry, offering students exposure to potential civil and environmental engineering vocations, technical skill projects, volunteer opportunities and student workshops.

“ASCE has research, practice, public service and philanthropic aspects,” said Joel Lanning, ASCE faculty adviser and assistant professor of teaching, “It’s a great involvement experience for the students.”

Beyond providing professional development, the student chapter encourages its members to participate in school and community events, including the Anteater Involvement Fair, Art of Engineering, Concrete Canoe Beach Day, Bolsa Chica Cleanup, the Pacific Southwest Conference and others.

“Our chapter is honored to receive the recognition,” said Keenan Do, a senior civil engineering student and the newly elected 2020-21 UCI ASCE president. “We're incredibly proud and grateful for the effort that our former president Janelle Gonzalez and the previous executive board put toward improving UCI's ASCE chapter.”
