American Society of Civil Engineers

ASCE LogoASCE Seismic Design Team

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)is America's oldest national engineering society! It represents more than 133,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide. ASCE's vision is to position engineers as global leaders building a better quality of life. Comprised of Regional Councils, Younger Member Councils, Sections, Branches, Student Chapters and Clubs and International Student Groups, the Society and its volunteers are fully engaged in making this a better world by design.

Engineers for a Sustainable World Stanford will be sending 1-2 interns to the Indian Himalayas this summer to work with 2 members of SEEDS, an Indian-based NGO focused on disaster relief and mitigation, to research historic seismic design technologies, analyze existing buildings, and disseminate the technology and knowledge to the local people. SEEDS is looking for students with a structural or architectural background.
