Student Clubs



The Columbia University Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers is a pre-professional club dedicated to all students interested in Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering and Construction Management and Columbia University. While ASCE’s main focus is to aid members in finding scholarships and jobs both for summer and post graduation, the chapter also participates in a variety of activities. The most recognizable activity is the annual steel bridge competition, especially considering Columbia’s national finish in 2003 and 2004. The ASCE chapter also participates in majors informational sessions and job experience sessions for underclassmen and women.

The Columbia student chapter of the American Institute of Civil Engineers maintains offices in the Carleton Laboratory. The lab also provides major support and instruction during the annual construction of the AISC Steel Bridge.

Knickerbocker Motorsports at Columbia University (Formula SAE)

The objective of the Formula SAE competition is to conceive, design, fabricate, and compete with small formula style racing cars. The restrictions on the car frame and engine are limited so that the knowledge, creativity, and imagination of the students are challenged. The end result is a great experience for young engineers in a meaningful engineering project as well as the opportunity to work in a dedicated team effort.  Columbia’s team competes annually on a national level.

The Carleton Laboratory provides practical help for the group, especially in the areas of heavy ferrous machining and rigging.
