ASCE At Tufts - A Strong Legacy
Times have changed in the 129 years since the inception of the engineering program here at Tufts, but the level of scholarship and success of its students and graduates has remained firm. The ASCE Tufts Chapter has traditionally involved some of the Tufts' most dedicated engineers.

Make a Donation

There are currently over 90 members in the Tufts chapter of ASCE, and most importantly, this year we increased our active membership.  For example, the Steel Bridge team, which previously consisted of 6 members, expanded to 15 active and 5 part time participants this year.  With the increased enthusiasm in ASCE we have planned many new and exciting events for the year ahead.  We are planning a community service event to build concrete handicap ramps at nearby schools and we are planning our first environmental project.  As usual, the Concrete Canoe team and Steel Bridge Team will be competing in their respective events, and we will be having our annual barbeque/softball game.  However, your support is needed to help us to continue to expand and improve our programs.  We would greatly appreciate any assistance in the form of a donation from you or your organization to help us have another successful year.  If you would like to donate, please print and fill out the form linked below and mail it to the address listed.
