On April 9-10, 2022, the Johns Hopkins Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) co-hosted the 2022 ASCE Mid-Atlantic East Symposium with Morgan State University and the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA).
ASCE Regional Symposia are annual events designed to facilitate networking among civil engineering students who attend college within similar geographic regions, and to provide a forum for organized competitions including Concrete Canoe, AISC Steel Bridge, Sustainable Solutions, and a paper presentation. Winners of these competitions will advance to national competitions in late spring / early summer 2022.
The paper competition and the Sustainable Solutions competition were hosted on the JHU Homewood campus, the Steel Bridge Competition on the campus of Morgan State University, and the Concrete Canoe competition on the USNA grounds.
In addition to JHU, Morgan State, and USNA, ASCE Student Chapters from Drexel University, Lafayette University, Lehigh University, Temple University, University of Maryland, and Villanova University participated in the Symposium activities.
JHU students took first place in the paper competition and second place in the aesthetics category of the AISC Steel Bridge competition. They also coordinated logistics, moderated panels, and designed the Symposium logo for this year’s competition.
