INTRODUCTION TO ACES

Association of Civil Engineering Students (ACES) is a professional club within the University of Nairobi. It draws its membership from Civil Engineering Students in the School of Engineering. Its main objective is to enhance the civil engineering student life by developing links with the industry and academia. Its main initiatives include educating, exposing, and informing its members to the civil engineering field.

It also strives to ensure that its members are sensitive to their surrounding communities and environment by participating in charitable activities. Furthermore, ACES aims at equipping students with knowledge and experiences they need after they graduate and get into the job market.

Talks are among the most important events in our calendar as they create a link between the engineers and the students training to be engineers. Talks equip the students with a wealth of knowledge on the options, regulations, registration and developments in the Civil engineering field. They also are a platform for the students to interact with people who are already in the industry. They also are a way of inspiring the students to pursue the Civil engineering field after graduating. Some of the talks we have
