During the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and universities shut down and/or imposed other stringent measures to combat the spread of the virus. How should the civil engineering profession respond to this situation and what are our ethical responsibilities associated with civil engineering related operations such as offices, universities, construction sites, exam centers, and transit systems in response to the pandemic?
Entries for the contest shall be limited to one paper from each ASCE or AEI Student Organization and must be submitted through the Faculty Advisor.
Questions should be directed to
ASCE Student Services.
