Civil Engineering Student Group Receives National Honor


Jewell’s American Society of Civil Engineers student chapter received a Letter of Honorable Mention from ASCE for its outstanding activities in 2020.

Some of the group’s successes included doubling its active membership, preparing for design-build competitions, introducing engineering to elementary students and networking with professional ASCE members. This honorable mention recognition is reserved for the top third of all student groups.

Dr. Taqsim Husnain, assistant professor of engineering, serves as ASCE faculty adviser. Jewell’s Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree is designed with an emphasis on the environmental, social and economic impacts of our decisions.
