American Society of Civil Engineers

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION

"The American Society of Civil Engineers, a professional organization representing more than 146,000 civil engineers, celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2002. When the twelve Founders gathered at the Croton Aqueduct on November 5, 1852, and agreed to incorporate the American Society of Civil Engineers and Architects, one can only wonder if they dreamed the profound significance and long-lasting impact ASCE would have on the overall development of society."
