2017 ASCE Texas Student Symposium

El Paso, Texas
University of Texas at El Paso

March 2 - 4, 2017

ASCE Texas Section has re-engineered its Student Symposium to foster close association between engineering professionals and university students. Beginning in 2016, the Symposium combined the two student competitions, steel bridge and concrete canoe, at one event. Other student competitions, such as concrete bowling or geo-wall modeling, will be incorporated into future Symposiums.

Students, whether they are contestants or soon-to-graduate, will have the opportunity to attend a series of soft-skill seminars to prepare them for their new careers. The students will learn how to create an excellent resume, interview for a job, plan for their future careers, and how to network. A Texas-wide career fair will give them the opportunity to put this specific learning into play at the Symposium, and employers will have access to exceptional students.


Jacobs Engineering participated in the Career Fair in 2016 and had the following to say: “our attendance at the 2016 Student Symposium Career Fair provided our Jacobs team the opportunity to witness firsthand some of the brightest civil engineering minds at work through the steel bridge and concrete canoe competition! Also, our team was able to network with these students regarding employment
opportunities (internships as well as entry level) and as a result we had several interviews and placements throughout
our offices.”


The students who are participating in ASCE are some of the brightest civil engineering minds engaged in leadership, teamwork, and professionalism.


The Symposium Career Fair is an opportunity for employers to meet with students from universities from across Texas in one place. The Career Fair will allow employers to interact with the students over the course of two days.

The theme for the 2017 Student Symposium is “Building Bridges/Trascendiendo Fronteras.” ;


The symposium includes seminars on sustainability and is focused on soft skills that support the transition from the learning environment to the professional arena. The seminars will be on communication, self-marketing, professional dress, safety, and financial savvy.
