Auburn University Student Chapter

The Auburn University Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers was the first ASCE Student Chapter founded in the Deep South and one of the first in the nation. Since their founding in 1921 they have been a leader within the ranks of ASCE Student Chapters and on Auburn University's campus. With a membership of over 100 students they are among the largest and most active campus groups at Auburn. The Montgomery Branch is excited to work with the Auburn Student Chapter -- assisting in mentoring, sharing ideas, and partnering in outreach.

River Region Pre-College Outreach

The Montgomery Branch awards annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors with an interest in civil engineering. In addition, the Branch is excited to be partnering with the Auburn University Student Chapter to reach out to schools across the River Region. Our goal is to inform kids about all of the exciting choices in civil engineering and to encourage them to pursue their dreams. This work will involve speaking to local science, math, and engineering clubs; forming relationships with school administrators and faculty; and demonstrating engineering through fun and thought provoking activities and events.
