In the 125 years since ASCE was formed, not only has the technique of civil engineering evolved dramatically. So has the professional stature of the men and women who call themselves civil engineers. The hallmarks of a profession include: maintenance of standards of education, of standards of competence to practice, and attention to the public welfare as first priority. ASCE and its members have been leaders among U.S. engineering specialties in encouraging this evolution to professional status.
