Sustainable Infrastructure Education Working Group


Develop and maintain, in cooperation with ASCE's Continuing Education Department, a set of on-line, continuing education courses that provide the body of knowledge needed for professional competence in the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and removal/restoration of sustainable infrastructure systems. Monitor ASCE's program for professional credentialing of engineers in sustainability and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure's Envision Rating System, and work to assure that ASCE's program of Sustainable Infrastructure Education is compatible with these related professional and project certification programs.

Sustainability Course

The Committee on Sustainability created a 6-week course called Making the Case for Sustainable Infrastructure. This course is ASCE’s first course to address “making the case” for infrastructure: it follows our extensive efforts to recognize and promote sustainability in the industry.

ASCE recognizes the leading role civil engineers have in planning, designing, building, and ensuring a sustainable future by providing the bridge between science and society. In this role, engineers actively promote and participate in multidisciplinary teams with other professionals, such as ecologists, economists, and sociologists, and work with communities to effectively address the issues and challenges of sustainable development.

The knowledge gained throughout this course will enable you to secure support for sustainable thinking and infrastructure.

Sustainable Infrastructure Certificate Program

ASCE’s Sustainable Infrastructure Certificate Program will provide you with the knowledge, tools, and techniques that you need to design, build, and manage sustainable projects and to take a leadership role in making our infrastructure sustainable.

All courses in the certificate program are offered online and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing you with the flexibility to take the courses at times that are most convenient for you.
