Virginia Tech ASCE hosts a large student population with approximately 200 members. This chapter was founded in 1923 and since then has actively engaged with the VT and Blacksburg communities to promote engineering and sustainable practice in everyday life. Active for over 90 years, the chapter has worked to clean local streams and hiking passes, inspire young students to pursue an engineering discipline, foster scholarship among current civil engineering students, and visit local and distant landmark structures of engineering feat.
It is the mission of the Virginia Tech Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers to provide a multitude of networking opportunities for its members through speaking engagements with professionals practicing in the field and through interactions between chapter members. This chapter will aid its members in refining their own interests by demonstrating the depth of the Civil Engineering field through various speakers and field trips. Above all, this chapter strives to be professional and ethical, and inspire these traits in its members.
The VISION of the Virginia Tech Student Chapter of ASCE is to continue encouraging its members to become future leaders of the civil engineering community and of the public.
