Students are encouraged to actively participate in professional/technical organizations. These organizations provide an opportunity to improve their communication, management, and leadership skills.
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is a professional organization with a student chapter at LSU. We strive to familiarize the students with the profession and job opportunities by inviting professors, professional engineers, and organizations to speak at our bi-monthly meetings.
Chi Epsilon Honors Society
Dedicated to the purpose of maintaining and promoting the status of Civil Engineering as an ideal profession, Chi Epsilon was organized to recognize the characteristics of the individual Civil Engineer deemed to be fundamental to successful pursuit of an engineering career, and to aid in the development of those characteristics in the Civil Engineering student. Engineering is assuming an increasing responsibility for the physical well-being of all people, and thus calling for competence of a high order. This responsibility can be discharged only by a professional group whose members are possessed of a good basic technical ability, intelligence, moral integrity, and effective social poise in their relationship with a larger community of which they are a part. To contribute to the improvement of the profession, Chi Epsilon fosters the development and exercise of sound traits of character and technical ability among Civil Engineers, and its members, by precept and example, toward an ever-higher standard of professional service.
