American Society of Civil Engineers Student Center - ASCE founded in 2016. Through its diverse activities and academic projects of technological and educational innovation, they work on a continuous improvement of the Civil Engineering student through their links with ASCE and Civil Engineering entities, to train leaders who build a better life.

If you want to know more about Civil Engineering, to deepen in one of its areas, to find a job or internship, to establish contact with people in Civil Engineering, to get involved in projects or spend unforgettable moments with amazing people, ASCE ESPOL is the place for students.



The IAHR, for its acronym in English means International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research; the association was founded in 1935 by an international group formed by engineers and specialists working on the field related to hydraulic and environmental sciences. In April 2012, the students who persue a bachelor's degree on Civil Engineering at the College of Geosciences Engineering at the ESPOL Polytechnic University, feeling curiosity and in need to be linked to the workfield of hydraulic and environment, decide to research which associations are handled abroad, in order to obtain related and updated information about the projects that are handled abroad; among them, the one with the greatest importance was the IAHR.

The main objective of the Society of Petroleum Engineers is to connect the industry with the academy, knowing that SPE is a community that congregates engineers, Ph.Ds, scientists and students related to the hydrocarbon area. The SPE community is present in 141 nations. In our country, the directory of SPE Section Ecuador includes directors of the companies that develop activities of exploration, exploitation and commercialization of hydrocarbons such as REPSOL, PETROAMAZONAS, ENAPSIPEC, AGIP, ANDES PETROLEUM, SCHULUMBERGER, HALLIBURTON, among others. There are clubs similar to ours along of all the universities that offer a petroleum engineering bachelor's degree in Ecuador. Our club is the first of the country, since it was founded on July 1, 1994 ESPOL Polytechnic University, where over the years has forged a story of commitment and hard work with the community.
