Welcome to the Northwest Indiana Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers

Welcome to the recently reactivated ASCE Northwest Indiana Branch. ASCE Northwest Indiana Branch (NWIB) was originally established in 1952. However, after being inactive for several years, it was reactivated in October of 2016. Since 2014, we have seen an over-whelming support from our enthusiastic ASCE members and successfully completed several events.  ASCE NWIB, covers Lake, Porter, Jasper, Pulaski and Newton Counties of Northwest Indiana.  

We typically meet every quarter with an outdoor event in the summer and a charity event in the winter months. We plan to have at least one meeting per year jointly with the Student Chapters of the local universities with Civil Engineering program.  Please visit our Events page for various programs we have so far.
