Established in 2010, ESSIE encompasses the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering and the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences.


Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is an international network of civil engineers and the oldest national professional engineering society in the United States. Chartered in 1968, the University of Florida Student Chapter is one of the largest student chapters with over 120 active members. Our chapter transforms civil engineering students into working professional engineers. Our students volunteer at community service projects, get to know one another at chapter socials,  compete in intramural sports, study together in the ASCE lounge, network at  conventions and compete in national engineering competitions.
