    Is there any platform with ASCE through which we have an opportunity to do online MSc in civil engineering? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, ASCE doesn't offer anything currently. Does anyone else else have recommendations they may be able to share?

    With many colleges turning to online learning options as a result of COVID-19, it might be worth reaching out to colleges or universities that have programs you're interested in to see if they're offering any online only options. For instance our local university is planning to offer all of their courses both online and in person to help keep the students safe.

    Hi,


    However ASCE does offer lots of Professional Development courses / Seminars some of which are paid and some you can purchase. If you are a member you will get access to 10 such with your membership. These seminars do not count as Formal education but they are recognized by Statutory and Regulatory bodies of engineers and are counted as Continued Education Hours or  CEU/PDH . Most institutions require you to gather a minimum number of such CEU/PDH for renewing your Professional license. I am myself planning to apply for PE in india and know that these are recognized in India.

    Hi Muhammad! While ASCE does not offer degree programs, ASCE does offer certificate programs that provide in depth education and training in a number of civil engineering specialty areas. Below is a brief excerpt explaining the certificate program process, and you can learn more here.

    Certificate programs are mastery-focused packages of Guided Online Courses. Developed and delivered by leading industry professionals and educational experts, these multi-dimensional programs provide training that is focused on practical knowledge that will enable you to excel in your career.
    Upon finishing all required courses, participants will receive a certificate of completion

    I hope this is helpful!
