There are two civil engineering clubs here at Boise State University. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Student Chapter and the Civil Engineering Club. Together they are combined and work together to compete each year in the ASCE Regional Competition.
The purpose of these clubs is to become a multi-faceted organization where students can apply classroom knowledge to real world engineering through involvement in club activities and community outreach. In order to build a better reputation for the club and its members, we strive to give them opportunities and community service projects. The club is a resource to fellow students, giving students a place to network with professionals, meet other students, participate in club projects, and expand on knowledge learned in the classroom. We intend to initiate constructive growth for the club by strengthening our student base and establishing a solid relationship between the club and local industry.
Each year the clubs work on two main projects for competition: a steel bridge, and a concrete canoe. More about these competitions can be found on the project page. In addition to these projects the clubs also volunteer throughout the community at Rake Up Boise, Service Saturdays, and Adapt-a-Highway. Other activities such as camping trips, BBQs, pumpkin carving party, study groups, intramural teams, and much more is also put on to encourage involvement and to get to know fellow civil engineering students.
