  • Description: The CU ASCE student chapter hosted the ASCE Rocky Mountain Regional Conference in April 2019, which was attended by student ASCE chapters from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. There was large community envolvment, including many student volunteers and participants, industry, and staff support. The CIEST staff helped support the conference from the early developmental stage through the completion of the conference. The conference was a great way to celebrate the hard work of the conference comittee and the student competition teams from each school that worked so hard to compete.
