The Montana Technological University student chapter of The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) provides civil engineering students not only the resources they need to excel academically, but also instills the characteristics and provides the opportunities that they will need to excel professionally. We aim to develop well rounded civil engineers to send off into the work force.
Montana Tech’s ASCE club goal is to prepare our students for the professional world by providing them opportunities they may not see in the classroom. One way we do this is by hosting “Lunch-and-Learns” where professionals in civil engineering showcase the engineering projects they have been able to work on and share helpful real-world advice with our students. This provides our students both networking opportunities and the chance to see more realistically the different avenues they can follow with their civil engineering degrees. This year, we plan to host nine lunch-and-learn events, inviting professionals from all over in many different sub-fields of civil engineering. We also plan to visit Geneva Rock Construction in Salt Lake City, Utah to give our students an interactive, front row taste of what civil engineering could look like for them.
We also provide hands-on opportunities for our students, including field trips to different civil engineering facilities and starting up this year, by competing in the national ASCE Concrete Canoe competition. We are extremely excited to be competing in the national ASCE Concrete Canoe competition this year. With the regional competition in the spring, our students will be hard at work beginning in August, designing a canoe structure, composing a concrete mix, and training for the canoe race.
Montana Tech ASCE is asking for your support to help provide both the education and hands on experiences we know will enrich and prepare our ASCE members. Your generosity will allow us to host our Lunch-and Learn events, and will provide the means to purchase materials and equipment to make our concrete canoe, and cover our travel expenses.
