Computing in Civil Engineering Award

The Computing in Civil Engineering Award was established by the Technical Council on Computer Practices (now the Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology). It was officially instituted by action of the Board of Direction in January 1995, and was funded by computer-oriented industries within the field of civil engineering.

This award was established by the Society's Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology to recognize outstanding achievement and contribution in the use of computers in the practice of civil engineering.

I.    The award is made annually to a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers who has made an outstanding contribution to the application of computers to the practice of civil engineering. Computer-related contributions in any technical discipline or professional context are eligible for this award without restriction.

II.    Not more than one presentation of the award will be made each year unless the achievement upon which the award is based is the joint work of more than one individual. No individual may receive the Award, or a portion thereof, more than once.

III.    The nomination of the recipient of the award is the responsibility of the Executive Committee of the Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology. The nomination is subject to the approval of the Executive Committee of the ASCE Board of Direction. The Executive Committee of the Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology may, at its discretion, choose to forego nominating anyone for the Award in any given year.

IV.    The award consists of a plaque and a cash prize determined annually by and subject to the approval of the Executive Committee of the Board of Direction based on the income from the award endowment. If the award is presented for a group effort, the lead recipient shall receive the plaque and cash prize. All other recipients shall receive only a certificate.
