Welcome to the Cincinnati Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers

 

Welcome to the website of the Cincinnati Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), a professional society for civil engineers.   Inside you can find more information about the Section, Section contacts, Section activities and upcoming events by using the Navigation Bar at the top of the page.  

The health and safety of our members is our highest priority.  Based on guidance from federal, state and local health officials and National ASCE, the Section has cancelled all in-person meetings and events through July 2020 in response to the COVID-19.    The Section will sponsor some virtual seminars in the next few months.  Traditional programming is tentatively planned to resume later this summer, conditions permitting.  Please check the events section of this webpage and your email for updates. 

The Cincinnati Section was founded in 1920 and is celebrating its 100-Year Anniversary in 2020.  The Section planned a series of events throughout the year to commemorate and celebrate the anniversary. 
 
The 100-Year Anniversary activities started on February 22, 2020 with a dinner meeting and a great presentation on Cincinnati’s Waterfront by John Deatrick, PE, and John Schneider, two Cincinnati leaders that were involved in many of the decisions and projects that created today’s waterfront.  Approximately 90 attendees listened to a great presentation at the Moerlein Lager House. 
 
All In-person Section meetings were cancelled after the February meeting. 
 

The ASCE Section is tentatively planning to resume our 100-Year Anniversary events in August of this year.  These events will include: a commemorative family friendly engineering walk, and technical meetings on: 1) Potential Future of Cincinnati and the trends and forces driving change in Cincinnati and beyond; 2) Building toward a Future; and 3) ASCE’s Future World Vision: Infrastructure Reimagined – a look at the exciting future of civil engineering and the built environment.  The Anniversary Meetings will include both technical and general information and will be for engineers and those interested in the history and future of Cincinnati - significant others and spouses are welcome!
