The CSUN Steel Bridge team is on their way to Nationals in May; they will be traveling to Kansas City, Missouri to compete against the top 50 universities around the nation. With an amazing performance in Tucson, AZ at the Pacific Southwest Regional Conference, the team won first place in Stiffness as well as Construction Speed, they also took home second in Efficiency, Economy, and Lightness. A GoFundMe Campaign was started to allow alumni and all interested parties the ability to help bring the team to Nationals. Please follow the link for more information.
In other news, the CSUN Concrete Canoe also took home third place in Final Product for the first time and also had paddling teams place in the top 10 of 4 out of the 5 events. They finished 5th overall this year. We also placed 2nd in Surveying which was quite the improvement from last year when we placed 18th.
As a continuation in growing all engineering fields at Cal State Northridge, ASCE CSUN would like to give notice to a new student chapter that will be at CSUN, Cal Geo. The California Geotechnical Engineering Association is the largest and most well respected group of geotechnical engineering consultants throughout the State of California. Similar to ASCE, they strive to improve regulations and close government loopholes as well as reach out to the students who will eventually become future engineers.
With the forming of Cal Geo at CSUN, They will attempt to get students engaged in the geotechnical side of engineering; in the first year of the student chapter we hope many students from the ASCE Student Chapter join Cal Geo as well. The cost of member to the CSUN Student Chapter is FREE and the cost of member for the National membership is only $10. This opens up all the opportunities to finding a internship or job in the field of geotechnical engineering.
