The mission of the University of Miami American Society of Civil Engineers student chapter is to serve as a bridge way for civil, architectural, and environmental engineering students in their development and advancement as professional engineers. This organization promotes integrity, professionalism, and technical prowess in all civil engineering disciplines. It serves as a network to forge relationships amongst students, our department faculty, and the professional engineering community in hopes of the betterment of civilization for all humanity. Through outreach and service we inspire energy and enthusiasm for engineering in the community as we provide with a higher understanding and appreciation of civil engineering.
The University of Miami’s ASCE executive board has set several goals for the 2019-2020 year for our growing student chapter. They are as follows:
-Develop the academic and professional abilities of UM ASCE student members through dependable tutoring and mentorship opportunities. We want to help our student members stand out from their peers with practical experience and knowledge they can apply in the working world.
-Connect our student members with professionals in the civil engineering field, in both formal and informal settings, creating networking opportunities that can lead to future jobs and relationships. Through this goal, we also plan to grow our connection with the incredible UM College of Engineering alumni network. Our third goal is to establish an effective online presence, through social media and a revamped website. This will further help us reach professionals and alumni, even outside of the Miami-Dade area.
-Improve our university standing at the annual ASCE Southeastern Student Conference. Last year, our canoe placed in the top 10 overall, our highest mark in the past 5 years! We aim to continue this momentum through our canoe performance and mini competitions for an even higher overall university score. Our goals will lead us to our most impactful and exciting year in our organization’s history and we are excited to share with you our successes throughout the year!
