The Mississippi Section

The Mississippi Section of ASCE was founded in 1969 and currently has almost 1,000 active members from all disciplines and sectors of civil engineering. The Section is divided into four branches including the Jackson Branch, Vicksburg Branch, North Mississippi Branch and Gulf Coast Branch. The Section also includes three student chapters at Jackson State University, Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi.


The Section hosts an annual meeting in the Fall, and the individual branches and student chapters host numerous meetings and events throughout the year to provide our membership opportunities for continuing education or PDH’s, networking and fellowship. Opportunities to speak, exhibit and sponsor at these events are available and are an excellent way to gain exposure to our membership. The Section annually recognizes the individual excellence of professionals and students through scholarships and awards such the Young Engineer of the Year and Engineer of the Year awards.
