ASCE Region 6 Student Symposium

ASCE Region 6 Student Symposium

The annual ASCE Region 6 Student Symposium fosters close association between engineering professionals and over 350 university students. The Student Symposium combines the ASCE Concrete Canoe Student Competition, Steel Bridge competition, a variety of other student competitions, a career fair, and continuing education seminars into one event. Each year, the Student Symposium is hosted by an ASCE Student Chapter with support from their local Branch and the Texas Section. We believe this partnership results in the development of future industry leaders. Each year the host school identifies a theme and spends an entire year planning!

The Student Symposium includes seminars on technical topics* and power skills that support the transition from the learning environment to the professional arena. We are always looking for guest speakers – contact us at [email protected] with your ideas. The Student Symposium Career Fair is an opportunity for employers to meet with over 350 students from universities from Texas, Mexico, Oklahoma & New Mexico in one place. We know the students who participate in ASCE are some of the brightest civil engineering minds engaged in leadership, teamwork, and professionalism. We think you’ll agree, and we encourage you to consider attending the Career Fair annually! More details below.

Local professionals are encouraged to attend. Technical seminars planned by the local ASCE Branch are typically eligible for professional development hours (PDHs).
