COPRI Student Chapters

Graduate students at any U.S. college or university are encouraged to form a COPRI Student Chapter at their university.

Members of Student Chapters should be active student members of ASCE and/or COPRI. There are no dues requirements for Chapters, and student membership is free. Chapters are permitted to engage in appropriate activities to raise funds to support themselves.

The function of local Chapters is the enhancement of the education of students who are preparing to become coasts, oceans, ports, navigation, waterways, or wetlands engineering professionals. These organizations engage in activities of their choice as long as such activities do not violate the code of ethics of ASCE and COPRI. 

COPRI organizes activities for students and student organizations including student paper or poster competitions at specialty conferences and works with Student Chapters to provide funding or assistance for Chapter sponsored events throughout the year. 

COPRI also provides space on it's website and in the quarterly member newsletter, WaterWays, to promote Chapter activities and articles. COPRI Student Chapter members have participated in committee meetings and have a great chance to meet and network with engineering professionals.
