ASCE stands at the forefront of a profession that plans, designs, constructs, and operates society’s economic and social engine - the built environment. It is a leading provider of technical and professional conferences and continuing education, the world’s largest publisher of civil engineering content and an authoritative source for codes and standards that protect the public. ASCE represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries, but ASCE Fellows only represent three percent of the Society’s overall membership.
