The Tallest Tower Challenge

Engineering is SWEet is a spring annual event hosted by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) chapter at USC to help young middle school girls explore the fields of engineering through interactive and engaging workshops.

We are looking for volunteers to help at this event this coming Saturday! "The Tallest Tower Challenge" will be a civil engineering related workshop, and we are looking for volunteers from USC ASCE to help out anytime during this time frame! Pizza will be provided for the volunteers, and here is the signup link:


Concrete Canoe

Hey Canoers!

Just a few more weeks until PSWC (ahhhh!). Lots of meetings this week:

Also, its time to order your Canoe PSWC shirt! We have to order them soon, so fill out this form ASAP if you want one:

Contact us at if you have any questions. See you soon!


Geotechinal Wall

Interested in retaining walls and geotechnical engineering? Come out to our next Geotech meeting! We will be constructing the box itself this coming Thursday!

When: Thursday @ 4 – 5 p.m

Where: KAP lounge


Construction Team

Construction team will be meeting this Wednesday at 6 PM in KAP lounge! Hope to see you all there!


Steel Bridge

Hey Steel Bridgers!

Hope you all had a great spring break! PSWC is only a few weeks away, so we gotta BUILD THAT BRIDGE! The trusses are looking good, and the hydraulic press is working great to flatten our pieces, so get hype as fabrication is in full swing!

Meetings this week will be in KAP basement at the following times:

Tuesday- 4:30-6:30
Wednesday- 4:00-6:00
Friday- 1:00-3:30

Remember, if you want a spot to compete on the PSWC Build team, come to as many meetings as you can! Thanks for all of your hard work guys! See you soon!



When: Wednesday 4-5PM

Where: E-Quad

A couple more weeks until PSWC! We'll continue to practice with the total station as well as the steel tape and force gauge for measurements and corrections. We’ll schedule extra meetings on top of regular practice as well. Check GroupMe for updates!
