Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering
disciplines dating back to human evolution. Civil Engineering is
comprised of many sub-disciplines; structural engineering, transportation
engineering, environmental and water resource engineering, geotechnical
engineering, and surveying. Civil engineering forms the framework and is
a cornerstone for the economic success of our nation. This is made
possible by the leadership, innovation, and technical competency of
professional civil engineers. Civil engineers are largely responsible for
transforming the built environment and increasing the quality of life.
American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1852 and is currently one of
the most prominent engineering societies in the world. The Iowa Section
of ASCE was established in 1920.
