ABOUT UESI

The Utility Engineering & Surveying Institute (UESI) offers professionals working within the utility, pipeline engineering, and surveying/geomatics communities the opportunity to network with others and shape the future of the industry by participating in technical activities, conferences, and the development of internationally recognized standards. 

Utility Engineering is a branch of Civil Engineering that focuses on the planning, position, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and asset management of any and all utility systems, as well as the interaction between utility infrastructure and other civil infrastructure.

UESI formed in 2015 in response to a growing need to address new and existing utilities through the project development process as an engineering task discipline. Their mission - to deliver value to members and advance utility engineering and surveying professionals.

UESI was established to provide ASCE members with various activities to support their professional and technical growth including technical conferences, involvement in technical committees and UESI Chapters, Development of standards continuing education and Organizational membership.
