Here's what we've been up to lately
American Society of Civil Engineers
Advancing the profession of civil engineering at McNeese since 1982
American Society of Civil Engineers
ASCE is the oldest national professional engineering society, and was founded in 1852. Their mission is "to enhance the welfare of humanity by advancing the science and profession of civil engineering." There are more than 150,000 members in 176 countries. Here's a few things ASCE does:
Develops guidelines, codes, and standards.
Assists in the development of civil engineering education curricula and accreditation.
Promotes and provides continuing education for civil engineers.
Enhances the public image of civil engineers.
ASCE is the voice of the profession. ASCE helps members shape public policy to build better communities.
The McNeese Student Chapter of ASCE
The McNeese student chapter was chartered in 1982, and operates in the Louisiana Section. Our chapter provides students with an excellent opportunity to develop the leadership and organizational abilities that they will use throughout their careers, and seeks to provide a training ground for the future leadership of ASCE and the profession. McNeese ASCE has a proud history of active participation in conference and national competition, professional events, and community service.
McNeese State University
McNeese State University opened in 1939 as the Lake Charles Junior College, a division of Louisiana State University, in Lake Charles, LA. In 1970 the name was officially changed to McNeese State University. The 121 acre campus is home to students from through the United States and approximately 50 countries, as well as NCAA-certified Division I athletic programs.
The McNeese Engineering Program provides a professionally focused education in multiple disciplines and maintains ABET accredited curriculum at the bachelor and graduate levels. Our engineering department leadership coordinates with local industry and government to ensure that graduates will possess the technical skills to become successful practicing engineers. Graduates from McNeese become ethical and professional engineers as well as responsible members of their communities.

Here's how you can help
SPEAK AT AN EVENT
We're always looking for speakers to come to our meetings and events. In addition to contributing to the education and development of tomorrow's leaders, speaking at one of our events can be a good way to position your firm as a great place to work and talk about the opportunities available at your company. We'd love to hear about projects you've worked on, what it's like being an engineer, or career advice. Contact Us to set a date.
HIRE ONE OF OUR MEMBERS
The best way to help our members is to hire them! Internships are a fantastic opportunity for students to apply their education and gain the experience that will mature them into good engineers. Come to one of our meetings for a meet and greet or post a job to our Employment Opportunities.
Of course, we can always use financial donations. We'll be conducting several fundraisers throughout the year to fund projects like the concrete canoe, steel bridge, and community service projects. Whether it's buying a dinner, providing materials for a project, or making a financial contribution, your donation will be helping us develop the next generation of civil engineers and increasing the visibility of the profession. McNeese ASCE is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and your donation is tax deductible. We'll provide all the necessary documentation for your records. Thanks!
SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE
Our members are always up to something, and it's not unlikely that we'll be asking for your advice. We know most engineers love talking about projects they've worked on and how they made it work. We appreciate your time, and you're helping us become better engineers. Thanks in advance!
