Student Organizations

There are two student organizations within CEE. Both are open to all majors, and both are funded by donations, the New Mexico Tech Student Association (SA), and fundraisers.


ASCEFor civil engineering, there is the New Mexico Tech Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The club's website can be found here. The main project of the year for ASCE at NMT is participation in the annual Student Steel Bridge Competition, sponsored by ASCE and the American Institute of Steel Construction. This competition, held in April, requires that the team design, fabricate, and assemble a 20 ft. steel bridge from scratch. The club will participate for the first time in the ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition in the Spring 2008 semester. Apart from the steel bridge, the club has taken field trips to design firms, construction firms, construction sites, and to work with Habitat for Humanity. Such field trips allow the student to gain a better understanding of the practical aspect of civil engineering. The club's faculty advisor is Dr. Claudia M.D. Wilson, an assistant professor within the department.


Water Environment FederationThe Environmental Engineering Club (EEC) is an organization of students and professors interested in furthering their knowledge of practical applications in the industry. The EEC functions as a vehicle for organizing and funding student trips to a wide variety of industries to examine the processes and the applications of pollution control. The EEC also functions as a student chapter of the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF). The EEC page can be found here. The club's faculty advisor is Dr. Frank Y.C. Huang, P.E., an associate professor within the department.
