American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

Consider contributing to the success of young engineers

and support us as we develop the skills we'll need for our future careers.

A successful future in engineering starts with a solid foundation from experiences and connections made now.

The University at Buffalo ASCE Student Chapter is excited to begin on our design projects to submit into national competition this year. Last year our Seismic Design Team placed 13th nationally in their competition held in San Diego. Unfortunately, last year both Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge were unable to compete due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we could not compete last year, in the 2019 competition our Concrete Canoe Team placed 4th at the regional competition in Rochester, and our Steel Bridge Team placed 4th overall at the National Competition in Carbondale, Illinois. 

This year new rules were sent out and have brought new challenges for all design teams. The Concrete Canoe team has new mix restrictions, Seismic has new constraints on their building requirements and finally, steel bridge also has new rules due to competition possibly being virtual. 

Although competition this year might not look the same being virtual, we still need your support to buy the specialized materials and tools to help test our designs and continue to remain competing at a national level.

Will you give to ASCE this year to help us overcome challenges and keep UB ASCE on the national stage?

From every student on the UB ASCE Team, we kindly ask for your support. We would like to thank you in advance and say that your donation is greatly appreciated!

Seniors, make your gift of $20.21 (or more) and receive a green philanthropy cord to proudly wear at commencement, whatever it may look like.

National Bridge Build Time

It took us 5 min and 1 sec to build our bridge at 2019 nationals. This gave us the second fastest build time in the nation.
