An important objective of ASCE Pittsburgh is to build and maintain professional and technical skills for the members to better meet the needs of today’s marketplace. Continuing education is an effective tool to accomplish this goal.
Section 3 of the ASCE Code of Ethics states:
"Engineers shall continue their professional development to enhance their technical and non-technical competencies."
Accordingly, the Continuing Education Committee's (CEC) main objective is to provide a forum for communications among members of the Pittsburgh Section, members of Technical Groups, and civil engineering educators to share knowledge and information on new practices, techniques, and other information to maintain and advance technical and professional skills of Section members.
For additional information on local events or suggestions for future events, please contact one of our leadership members:
We are always seeking new members in helping meet our committee objectives.
The main obligation of a Committee Member is to work with the Committee chair and other members in a team environment to help organize at minimum three continuing education events each year. This may require finding suitable venues (hotels, restaurants, university auditoriums, etc.), finding speakers and sponsors, and creating event brochures. Some members lead the event organization effort as a project manager. Common CEC activities include (1) participation in quarterly committee meetings or conference calls, (2) participation in ongoing Email discussions, and (3) event planning and management. Engineers as well as student and faculty members are encouraged to apply. Nominations are also welcome. If interested,please email current chair, Justin Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
