The student chapter has existed at the University of Dayton since 1926.  This site is dedicated to providing information to the student members and to others interested in the organization.

The American Society of Civil Engineers, founded in 1852, is the oldest national professional engineering society in the United States.  The University of Dayton received a charter in 1926.  There were 24 members who each paid $0.50 to join.  Today, there are many more members who pay $10.00 to become a member.  The ASCE student chapter provides civil engineering students with the opportunity to begin a relationship with professional associations through its activities.
