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