American Society of Civil Engineers Announces International eLearning Initiative and First-Ever Guided Online Courses for Civil Engineers

RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - June 05, 2017) - The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the leader in lifelong learning for civil engineers, recently launched a series of new, premium guided online courses (GOCs) that provide rigorous learning for international civil engineers in high-demand topics such as construction, architecture, structures, water, forensics and sustainability, to name a few.

ASCE's GOCs deliver top-tier online instruction via six- or 12-week modules. The courses offer in-depth exploration of topics that couldn't be covered in a 90-minute webinar or even a two-day seminar. With a flexible format, peer-instructor interaction, dynamic video lectures, peer collaboration and interactive course content, GOCs offer a faster way for engineers to meet their continuing education goals and earn continuing education credits (CEU) or professional development hours (PDH).

Upcoming courses (available starting June 6 and continuing through 2017) include*:

ASCE is also offering a new Construction Engineering Certificate Program which comprises six GOCs - four courses in the core path and two elective courses. Learn more at

Along with GOCs and the Construction Engineering Certificate Program, ASCE offers a vast library of on-demand learning that allows civil engineers in multiple disciplines to keep pace with fast-moving developments in safety, water, structures and engineering forensics.

ASCE offers engineering firms and associations the ability to build a custom catalogue of ASCE courses that fit their employee/member needs along with group pricing. Firms and associations can also use ASCE's course distribution and reporting tool to order courses on demand and track learner activation and completion of courses.
