1. have at least 10 years exceptional responsible charge of engineering experience gain while at Member grade,

2. be a licensed Professional Engineer or Land Surveyor,

3. be nominated by an ASCE Organizational Entity,

For more information regarding the Fellow program click here.

ASCE Fellows occupy the Society's second-highest membership grade, exceeded only by Honorary Members. There is no direct admission to the grade of Fellow. Fellow status must be attained by professional accomplishments via application and election by the Membership Application Review Committee (MARC). It is a prestigious honor held by fewer than 5% of ASCE members.

Fellows are practitioners, educators, mentors, and most of all leaders. They have distinguished careers that have contributed significantly to the Civil Engineering profession. The accomplishments of Fellows have left their marks on their communities, society, and future engineering professionals.  Currently, active Fellows around the world number nearly 6,300.
