Membership recognizes academic achievement as well as demonstrated character, practicality, and sociability
The Duke University chapter of Chi Epsilon was established in 1964.
Chi Epsilon is dedicated to maintaining and promoting the status of civil engineering as an ideal profession. It fosters the development and exercise of sound traits of character and technical ability among civil engineers, and its members, by precept and example, toward an ever-higher standard of professional service. There is one initiation per academic year.
Since 1981, chapter members have presented the Earl I. Brown II Outstanding Civil Engineering Faculty Award.
