Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is committed to the advancement of the civil engineering profession and the individual engineer. ASCE acts as a forum for communication among individuals and groups involved in the practice of civil engineering. ASCE also offers a variety of professional development opportunities to members of the profession. The Iowa Section of ASCE, founded in 1920, exists so that Iowa civil engineers and associates may group together locally for their mutual benefit and professional advancement.

Conference Highlights

  • Connected & Automated Transportation Activities in Iowa
    Automated vehicles have the potential to improve safety, broaden mobility, and enhance commerce. This presentation will provide an overview of automated vehicle technologies and some of the current and future challenges including the role of digital infrastructure. University of Iowa and Iowa State University research will be presented to showcase how the State is working to become connected & automated vehicles (CAV) ready.
  • 3D Design Deliverables – Vendor, Design, and Construction Perspective
    The successful delivery of infrastructure projects (Transportation, Water, Energy) are central to the flourishing economies of the world – they form the nervous system of society. They also present the most challenging work environments and the most risky ventures for the contractors who build them. In this session we will cover how the 3D Design Deliverables can transform workflows and enable better real-time decision making to optimize project outcomes. Learn how the 3D Design Deliverables will deliver the safer, on-time, quality-driven, profitable projects of the future!
  • Engineering Ethics
    This presentation will include an overview of engineering ethics along with case studies. Participants will be given the chance to consider scenarios that the Board of Ethical Review has issued an opinion on previously.
  • Getting You There: Update from Iowa DOT
    An update on current DOT initiatives and status of major infrastructure projects across Iowa will be discussed.
