Texas Civil Engineer & TexASCE Website

Online Platform | Readership

The Texas Civil Engineer (TCE) is ASCE Texas Section’s award-winning, free online membership publication reaching 10,000+ members. In 2019, the Texas Section transitioned the TCE from a print magazine to an innovative online news publication, complete with interactive advertisements, links, and archived content. Readers are now fully engaged in the stories that matter most to them and our community through this online platform, with new content released bi-monthly.

Redesigned in early 2019, the ASCE Texas Section website (www.TexASCE.org) offers visitors a cleaner, easy to navigate design. With more than 2,000 visitors per month (average 24,000/year) from across Texas and beyond, the Section website highlights TexASCE’s six key programs that members and the civil engineering community rely on, as well as added features like an interactive events calendar and improved Texas Section Leadership page.

Awards

The Texas Civil Engineer is a six-time winner of ASCE’s Society Newsletter Award. It’s a forum for professional affairs, engineering news, and societal matters for ASCE Texas Section’s 15 Branches and 20 Student Chapters statewide.

Right out the gate, the redesigned ASCE Texas Section website won the 2019 ASCE’s Outstanding Section & Branch Web Award.
