Established in 1920, we are a Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers representing the State of Rhode Island. The structure of ASCE is composed of Regions, Section and Branches. ASCE Rhode Island Section is in Region 1 and based on the geographic size of the state and our membership levels, we are comprised of one Section. Within this Section, there are three membership levels. In the first level, there are student members from the student chapters of the University of Rhode Island and Roger Williams University. The second level are younger members who are active ASCE members under the age of 35. In the third and final membership level are professional members. This group is comprised of active ASCE members over the age of 35. To learn more about ASCE as a whole click here.
The Rhode Island ASCE Section strives to advance the science and profession of civil engineering in a manner consistent with the purpose of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
The RI Section and the Younger Member Group host a number of functions throughout the year from informational dinner meetings, to outreach, advocacy and community service events. To learn more about our upcoming events please see our events page for updates.
