Programs: Publications: the dissemination of technical and professional information to asce members and others in the civil engineering profession is a major goal of the society and the primary goal of the society's publishing program. This is accomplished through a variety of publications and information products, including 34 technical and professional journals, civil engineering magazine, an online bibliographic database, conference proceedings, standards, and technical reports.
continuing education: a key goal of the society is to encourage and provide the tools for lifelong learning to aid our members' continued growth throughout their careers. Lifelong learning is critical to civil engineers in keeping up-to-date with the latest technical advances and in ensuring that they remain competent. In fy14, asce had more than 45,000 individual civil engineers participate in its various continuing education programs. It held more than 200 live, face-to-face seminars in more than 40 cities across the u. S. , held more than 325 live webinars on a wide variety of technical and management topics, conducted more than 65 live p. E. Exam review course sessions on the web to assist younger asce members in passing the p. E. Exam and becoming licensed, and offered more than 325 online, on-demand courses which can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. More than 100 new continuing education programs were developed in fy14 in response to identified member needs.
engineering programs: the society's engineering programs division directly supports the society's purpose of advancing the science of engineering by producing technical content for publications, conferences and continuing education programs. The division consists of eight discipline specific institutes, four technical divisions and six technical councils. The work of the division is accomplished by members participating in more than 600 technical committees. The division has responsibility for oversight of the editorial boards of 28 of asce's 33 journals. Each year the division holds more than a dozen congresses and specialty conferences.
