ASCE Icon_Soaring skyscrapers ... massive dams ... bridges that reach the horizon ... Who dreams these thrilling and wondrous things and then makes them real?

The 123,000 civil engineers that together make up the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Most civil engineers discover a passion for engineering as kids. Our fascination with incredible feats of engineering sparks a lifelong interest in understanding the scientific principles that make them possible.

ASCE is delighted to help share this excitement for engineering through our sponsorship of BUILDING BIG and is eager to help young people discover how to use science creatively to help build a better world.

James E. Davis, P.E., F.ASCE
Executive Director and CEO
American Society of Civil Engineers
