  • “I work for a Structural Engineering firm in San Diego and attribute much of the success I have had to my involvement and experiences gained from ASCE as a student.”  - Kyle Marshall, P.E., M.ASCE
  • “ASCE was very influential in my college career.  I made many friends and contacts through the organization. ASCE helped me learn practical skills that can’t be taught in the classroom. Also, while at SJSU, I really enjoyed doing concrete canoe – and so, after participating in five Mid-Pac's, I wanted my shot at hosting the conference on our campus. It was a great experience.”  - Daniel Wanner, A.M.ASCE
