Welcome to the UMass AGC Website!

This is the home of the UMass AGC student chapter and everything related to it — semester events, resources, blog posts, and more.

We are a diverse community of students interested in construction, civil engineering, project management, and sustainability. We provide a wide range of events that are focused on learning and professional development. Join us as we explore the construction and engineering industries, advance our knowledge and skill sets, and meet other students and professionals with similar interests!

What We Are Up to:

Fall Semester Wrap Up:

Guest Speaker Courtney Kelly:

We got a chance to hear about Courtney’s experience in the construction industry. Here is a link to her website, she has recently authored a book called Celeste Saves the City, inspiring kids to about being a civil engineer! We enjoyed the talk with hot cocoa and sweets! Here’s some pictures from the event:

AGC members gathered at the UMass makerspace and got to work building a trebuchet. We successfully launched a bunch of pumpkins on Halloween. A blog post with more pictures has been uploaded.
