Competitions

Each year close to 200 American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapters build canoes made entirely of concrete. The concrete mix, reinforcement and mold are designed by each team with the goal of withstanding up to four rowers in endurance slalom and sprint races. Canoe competitions are judged by engineering professionals and the teams are scored on the canoe design, a design report, an oral presentation and a variety of races.
NUASCE's Steel Bridge team designs, builds, and tests a scale-model bridge made entirely out of steel.

Honor Societies

The Northeastern University chapter of Tau Beta Pi is an honor society encompassing every engineering discipline. The organization is devoted to helping engineers develop both technical skills and leadership abilities.
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 the successful pursuit of an engineering career, and to aid in the development of those characteristics in the civil engineering student.
