The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) (French: La Société canadienne de génie civil) was founded in 1887 as the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, renamed in 1918 as the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC), and re-established in June 1972 as member society of the EIC under the slightly different but current name.[1] It promotes advances in the field of civil engineering including geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, hydrotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and surveying and geomatics engineering. The executive director of CSCE is Doug Salloum. Members who are professional civil engineers are usually categorized and may use the post nominals as associates (AMCSCE), members (MCSCE) or fellows (FCSCE). The grade of "Fellow" is achieved through election by one's peers within the CSCE.
