Building the Next Generation of Civil Engineers

ASCE offers a full suite of resources to assist educators at every level.

Engineering Grades

ASCE’s Guidelines for Engineering Grades was created to help engineers and their employers recognize an engineer’s level of professional development and career advancement. The guidelines outline the knowledge, skills, and responsibilities associated with engineers at each grade.

The ASCE Guidelines for Engineering Grades Comparison Tool is an interactive online tool that lets you compare requirements across up to three different grades at once.
