Our History

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 133,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide, and is America's oldest national engineering society. ASCE's vision is to position engineers as global leaders building a better quality of life.  The Society comprises a national board of direction; over 600 local affiliates, which include 87 Sections, 158 Branches and 130 Younger Member Groups; 267 Student Chapters; and 11 International Student Groups.  The Mohawk-Hudson Section of The American Society of Civil Engineers was established in 1938. In 1976 the Mid-Hudson Branch was established to better serve ASCE members and their communities in the counties of Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, and Sullivan.
