About ASCE Baton Rouge Branch
The Baton Rouge Branch was established to serve ASCE Louisiana Section members in the Louisiana Capital Region. Together with other members of the Louisiana Section, we advocate ASCE's mission by serving as a liaison between civil engineering university students and the professional community, volunteering, and community involvement and sponsorship of continuing education luncheons and seminars.
