Welcome to our site!
Welcome and thank you for visiting ASCE's North Jersey Branch website. This website is a resource for you to find out what's going on with our branch, including contact information for Branch leaders and details on upcoming events.
With approximately 2,000 members, our branch is one of the largest in the country. We consistently enjoy interesting and diverse events put on by our technical groups and are frequently recognized for our website and newsletter.
Getting the most out of your ASCE membership means getting involved. There are many opportunities to contribute as part of our Technical Groups or Younger Member Group, as a liaison to one of the three civil engineering universities in our area or in any number of other positions.
My hope is that our organization will be the hub of civil engineering life in northern New Jersey, bringing together a diverse and talented group of professionals.
See you at the next meeting!

Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles, and its history is intricately linked to advances in understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Because civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, including several separate specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.
Civil engineers typically possess an academic degree with a major in civil engineering. The length of study for such a degree is usually three to five years and the completed degree is usually designated as a Bachelor of Engineering, though some universities designate the degree as a Bachelor of Science. The degree generally includes units covering physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Initially such topics cover most, if not all, of the sub-disciplines of civil engineering. Students then choose to specialize in one or more sub-disciplines towards the end of the degree. While an Undergraduate Degree will normally provide successful students with industry accredited qualification, some universities offer postgraduate engineering awards which allow students to further specialize in their particular area of interest within engineering
ASCE was founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 140,000 civil engineers worldwide with 4,100 in New Jersey, and is America's oldest national engineering society. ASCE is dedicated to the advancement of the individual civil engineer and the advancement of the science and profession of civil engineering through education.
ASCE's mission is to provide essential value to our members, their careers, our partners and the public by developing leadership, advancing technology, advocating lifelong learning and promoting the profession.
ASCE is headquartered in Reston, Virginia, and maintains an office in Washington, DC.
