Working For You: A Minute with Tom Smith
Working For You: A Minute with Tom Smith is a series of videos on the American Society of Civil Engineers’ commitment to the engineering community. In each episode, Tom Smith, ASCE’s executive director, gives you an update on various ASCE member benefits and programs.
Dream Big: Engineering Our World
All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of ingenuity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative, and amazing ways. Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a giant-screen film about engineering, takes viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audiences witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.
Everyday Engineering: STEM@Home
This series shows teachers and parents how to conduct a variety of STEM activities with their children or students in a home environment. We’ve adapted activities from materials developed for “Dream Big: Engineering Our World,” and you can get the written guides at https://www.asce.org/pre-college_outreach/.
2017 Infrastructure Report Card
ASCE’s Infrastructure Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, assigning grades and making recommendations to raise them. The 2017 Report Card found the national grade for infrastructure to be a D+. Learn more and find out how you can make a difference at https://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/.
ASCE and its members are dedicated to ensuring a sustainable future in which society has the capacity and opportunity to maintain and improve its quality of life indefinitely, without degrading the quantity, quality or the availability of natural, economic and social resources. But a changing climate and aging infrastructure have forced civil engineers to develop a new set of best practices to meet public demands for safety and sustainability.
Engineering Ethics in the Real World
Given the vital importance of engineering works to society, it is essential for engineers to understand their responsibility to protect the public health, safety, and welfare even in circumstances when doing so may come at a great personal cost. This video series features interviews with engineers and other professionals regarding their experiences with some of the most significant engineering ethics cases of modern times.
Thursdays @ 3
Because of the current COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on employees and the workplace, ASCE is hosting a series of virtual roundtables to help civil engineers during this difficult and uncertain time: https://collaborate.asce.org/covid-19/thursday-three.
2020 New Faces of Civil Engineering – Professionals
2019 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Awards
ASCE annually recognizes an exemplary civil engineering project as the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement. Established in 1960, this prestigious award honors the project that best illustrates superior civil engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to civil engineering progress and society. Honoring an overall project rather than an individual, the award celebrates the contributions of many engineers.
