ASCE regional competition canceled


March 18, 2020

In light of the emerging COVID-19 situation around the world and country, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has announced the cancellation of all remaining student conferences and competitions for the 2019-2020 school year. As a result, the upcoming regional competition in April, hosted by the UW ASCE student chapter, will no longer be taking place.

“We have taken this measure so that faculty and students may focus fully on completing their semesters remotely and in full consideration of their health, safety and welfare while doing so,” read a letter sent by ASCE President K.N. Gunalan and ASCE Executive Director Tom Smith, to Student Conference hosts and Student Chapters.
