A group of UM students traveled to Auburn, Alabama to represent the University of Miami against universities in the Southeast Student Conference.

Twenty-four universities with Civil Engineering Programs in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Puerto Rico and special guests from Tonji University in China participate each year in a civil engineering conference which includes 15 different competitions which range from designing and building a 20-ft steel bridge to designing, building and racing a 20-ft concrete canoe.

SCE is an organization that supports and advances the interests of Civil Engineering students and professionals in the United States.

The UM student chapter of ASCE (UM ASCE) has approximately 30 active members and successfully competes against schools like the University of Florida and the University of Central Florida with membership of over 200 students.

At the Southeast Student Conference, UM ASCE took home 1st place in the Surveying Competition, 2nd place in the Crash Attenuator Competition, 3rd place in the Environmental Competition, and 3rd place in the Visual Display Competition. UM placed top ten in 11 out of the 15 competitions and most importantly they took home the Spirit Award, given to the school with the most spirit during the entire conference.

UM came in 6th overall this year.

UM ASCE also provides students with networking opportunities with professionals by having companies visit their general meetings who are also looking to hire interns and entry-level engineers.
