Merrimack College ASCE student chapter
The Merrimack College student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is an organization for civil engineering students of all class years. Our student chapter is a great place to begin exploring your interests in engineering and to connect with other students, alumni, and faculty. Joining the club is also a great opportunity to learn more about practicing engineers in the field where your Merrimack education can lead you. The club hosts many guest lecturers from both the public and private sector, as well as within Merrimack. Our chapter also goes on field trips to real-world engineering projects, including buildings, bridges, and highways under construction. Students in our chapter also partake in the annual ASCE Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe competitions. Each year a group of students design and build these structures to compete against schools across the nation. ASCE is a great chance to meet other civil engineers and learn more about careers after college.
“What makes the Merrimack ASCE chapter so special is that freshmen are actively involved and in the competitions and the organization where at larger schools they are left out. Many freshmen including myself have learned a great deal from upperclassmen who have already had engineering classes under their belt. The benefits of ASCE are unlimited.”
