Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 125,000 civil engineers and is the nation's oldest national engineering society. Established in 1958, the New Hampshire Section is a local section of ASCE. The local sections provide an opportunity for members to address issues and be involved in activities which are of a more local or regional nature.


ASCE NH Mission Statement

The mission of the New Hampshire Section of ASCE is to uphold and enhance the integrity and ethics of the Civil Engineering profession; to serve the community of engineers and New Hampshire; to improve interaction with and education of the public and legislators; to foster professional and technical interaction among students, younger members, and experienced professionals; and to instill enthusiasm in the profession and the membership.

Operating Manual

The Section Board of Directors developed this “Operating Manual” as a guide to assist the Board of Directors in accomplishing their duties efficiently and effectively with the limited hours volunteered to conduct Section policy.


Membership in ASCE is open to all individuals with an interest in Civil Engineering. While membership in ASCE is not a prerequisite for membership in the New Hampshire Section of ASCE, members typically join ASCE and specify New Hampshire as their local chapter. Membership in ASCE can be obtained through a variety of Membership Grades and through a number of Institutes. Each grade and Institute may have different requirements for membership.

UNH Student Chapter

The purpose of the Student Chapter is to facilitate the professional and educational growth of the UNH civil engineering students. Our chapter keeps students well informed of their educational and professional opportunities through regular chapter meetings that include the participation of faculty and professionals from all fields of civil engineering. Currently, we are building a petanque court outside of the engineering building on campus for the use of all students at UNH. We are also starting a mentoring program, where an upperclassman is partnered with an underclassman to assist with any academic or personal issues they face.


A crucial objective of this chapter is building teamwork, as well as engineering and communication skills essential to a successful career in civil engineering. For example, both the Steel Bridge Team and Concrete Canoe Team foster and promote teamwork, network building, and organizational skills that are a great advantage to working professionals.

Upper Valley Branch

To provide a forum for Civil Engineers in the Grafton and Sullivan counties referred to as the Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire to participate in the profession. The Upper Valley Branch operates as a subsidiary organization of the New Hampshire Section ASCE by electing officers, conducting fund-raising activities and organizing and executing meetings, field trips, seminars and other events of interest to its members. The Section provides financial and organizational support to the Branch in the form of space in the Newsletter, branch allotment, etc.
