Learning and growing together

Building our Future since 1989

The International Association of Civil Engineering Student (IACES) was founded in 1989, when students from various European countries gathered in University of Delft (Netherlands) for the first Academic Congress of Civil Engineering Students (ACCESS). The common goal was to improve contacts, promote support, cooperation, exchange of ideas and understanding between civil engineering students throughout Europe.

As IACES kept growing, new members joined and new ventures commenced.  Since its founding, more than fifty Local Committees (LCs) have been established in European, Asian, and African universities, making the association truly international.
