ASCE/SAME UofL Student Chapter

Welcome to the award-winning, nationally recognized 
University of Louisville ASCE/SAME Student Chapter!


On behalf of the ASCE/SAME Student Chapter here at the University of Louisville, it is an honor and privilege to welcome you to our nationally recognized, award winning group.  Over the past seventy years our chapter has evolved into one of the nation’s largest and most active student chapters.  In four out of the past five years, U of L has received the Outstanding Student Chapter Award presented by the Kentucky Section of ASCE.  In October 2009, the student chapter was officially chartered by the University of Louisville Student Government Association as a Recognized Student Organization (RSO).

Our Chapter is associated with both the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). Membership is open to all engineering students currently enrolled at U of L interested in civil and environmental engineering, as well as those seeking careers in military engineering.  For more information about membership, please visit the Membership page of this website.

The Executive Board of Officers is making diligent strides towards enhancing our student chapter during the 2013-2014 academic year.  Areas we are currently focusing on include: membership recruitment and retention, increasing the chapter's presence in community service projects, working with local schools on math and science education, and becoming more active in the Regional ASCE Ohio Valley Student Conference (OVSC) competitions.

This year, the U of L Steel Bridge Team won 1st overall at the OVSC, taking home 1st place finishes in 4 of the 6 judging categories and earning a spot at the National ASCE-AISC Steel Bridge Competition for the second time in school history. The team is looking to build on this success, and have another award winning competition next year. For more information about the team, please see the Steel Bridge page of this website.

I would like to take this time to introduce myself as well as express how much I am looking forward to working with my newly appointed executive board of officers to continue the tradition of this chapter. I hope to continue the success of the chapter and to establish us within our community as much more than a student organization. I have full confidence in my officers and our members that we will accomplish this goal as well as the many others we have set for the upcoming year.

Feel free to browse through our pages and contact me if you have questions or concerns regarding the chapter.


Brooks Benton, 2012-2013 President
