The GU Student Chapter of ASCE assists aspiring civil engineering students in reaching their educational and professional development goals. The chapter does this by participating in informative projects, technical presentations and project site visits, maintaining an active relationship with the local professional engineering community, and participating in a wide variety of engineering service projects.

Generally, ASCE sponsors 3-5 field trips per year to construction sites and infrastructure projects, as well as sites of local or historical significance. We also participate in service learning programs. Most importantly, ASCE connects students to the real world of engineering.
