2021 Pacific Southwest

ASCE Student Conference

Hosted by University of California, Los Angeles


March 25-27, 2021 | University of California, Los Angeles


Before anything else, UCLA acknowledges the Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of the Los Angeles basin. As a land grant institution, we pay our respects to the ancestors, elders and relations of the past, present and emerging.

UCLA is incredibly excited to host the 2021 ASCE Pacific Southwest Conference! As we navigate through planning a student conference amidst a pandemic, we are preparing for a conference just as exciting and rewarding as any previous conference. Although it will not take place on location, the 2021 Planning Committee is proudly anticipating a historic PSWC conference to take place virtually.
