  • Dream Big Engineering Our World Movie Poster

    All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of ingenuity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative, and amazing ways. Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a giant-screen film about engineering, takes viewers on a journey of discovery from the world’s tallest building to a bridge higher than the clouds. Along the way, the audiences witness how today’s engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.


    In partnership with MacGillivray Freeman Films, and presented by the Bechtel Corporation, ASCE is proud to present Dream Big: Engineering Our World.

    Combined with educational programming and powerful media, Dream Big:

    • Informs the public about the important work engineers do, helping to heighten interest and change perceptions about the profession
    • Inspires young people to consider careers in engineering
    • Answers the demand for K-12 engineering education resources, in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards
  • Watch the Dream Big Trailer!

  • We brought Dream Big to More Communities

    Every child should Dream Big. Together, we made that possible.

    ASCE & Bechtel, with generous support from the United Engineering Foundation, set an ambitious goal: to put a copy of he Dream Big film and educational toolkit in every public school in America.

    We did it! ASCE Sections, Branches, the ASCE Foundation, and individual members purchased a copy of Dream Big for every public school in the United States.
