Welcome to The American Society of Civil Engineers Wisconsin Section

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 140,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. The Wisconsin Section of ASCE was originally organized as the Milwaukee Section. The Milwaukee Section started on March 20, 1923. Several meetings were held jointly with the Engineers and Scientists of Milwaukee (ESM) and in September 1926, a contract was signed affiliating the two groups. In April 1938, the Milwaukee Section changed its name to the Wisconsin Section. Over time, four branches have been established-Southwest in 1962, Fox River Valley in 1966, Northwest in 1974, and Southeast in 1977. The Wisconsin Branch currently consists of approximately 2000 members.

ASCE’s Mission

Provide essential value to our members and partners, advance civil engineering, and serve the public good.

2020 Wisconsin Infrastructure Report Card Release Updates

The ASCE Wisconsin Section Report Card Committee is currently working on the Infrastructure Report Card for Wisconsin!

Join us March 3 for the Milwaukee ASCE Wisconsin Section Infrastructure Report Card Release Fundraiser at City Lights Brewing Company! 

Currently our technical chapters are finalizing their Chapters and Chapters are under peer review of the Section. Once the peer review is complete, the Chapters will be sent to the Society for review and approval. In the near future we will be looking to raise funds for the release event and for producing Report Card pamphlets to hand out to Section Members, Elected Officials, and other parties who we will be talking to about the Report Card.

If you are interested in helping raise funds or helping with a different aspect of the Report Card, please reach out to Jennifer (Jennifer.Schaff@countymaterials.com) or Ken (KMika@Geosyntec.com).
