ASCE Golf Tournament

Even though we are a professional society, we like to also make sure that we have fun while improving our technical skills and encouraging the younger generations. A few years ago, our scholarship fundraiser turned into an annual scholarship golf outing. We have had record breaking fundraising and are looking to add to our scholarship program. We would like to thank all who have continued to make the program a success and hope that all of our golfers have a great time at this year's outing! Please see the Events page for more details.

Spring Technical Conference

The Southeast Branch hosts the Wisconsin Section Annual Meeting and Spring Technical Conference on a rotating basis with the Southwest Branch and Fox Valley Branch. Mark your calenders for March 6, 2014 for the Wisconsin Section Spring Technical Conference at the Country Springs Hotel. Please see the Events page for more details.

Community Outreach

In addition to technical abilities, we are also very active in the community with activities like Habitat for Humanity, Hunger Task Force Food Drive and Earth Day Clean Ups. Most events are established by our Younger Member Group, however they aren't limited to just Younger Members! Come out and join us!

The Southeast Branch participates in many competitions each year to promote and encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. As part of that commitment we provide funds for activities established by the Younger Member Group. This year that expanded to include an activity during the MATHCOUNTS lunch break. The students were given office supplies to build the tallest tower they could in 15 minutes. The winners were Brown Deer Middle School for a tower nearly 5 feet high. Prizes were also given for innovative ideas. MATHCOUNTS is a national competition sponsored locally by WSPE with volunteer assistance by ASCE.


The American Society of Civil Engineers has a great resource available to help kids learn who civil engineers are and what they do. A fully interactive site called ASCEville gives students, teachers, and other engineers the resources to help build our silent profession. Check it out, I dare you!
