Feature Stories

More than 100 years ago, our department started with only two faculty and a small but dedicated group of students. Today, we are one of the largest, most extensive civil engineering departments in the nation, with more than 10,000 living alumni, over 1,000 students, and over 60 faculty members. Even though we are top ranking and large in size and stature, we make it a priority to connect with our students and to foster a sense of community.

These stories illustrate both why our graduates are sought out by industry, government, and academia and why our research programs continue to improve the quality of life for many.

Annual Report Presentation 2019 1ASCE Meeting September 18, 2019

The University of Texas at Austin ASCE Student Chapter has been selected by the Committee on Student Members from the national American Society of Civil Engineers to receive a Letter of Honorable Mention for its outstanding activities as recorded in the 2019 Chapter annual report. This is recognition received by only the top third of all Student Organizations.

The student officers worked together and with members to expand the variety of topics covered at the general meetings, increase member attendance at meetings and events, collaborate with other student chapters and UT organizations, and increase the number of site visits and lunch and learns offered. These accomplishments reflect the enthusiasm and hard work of everyone involved.
