Members attain Fellow status from professional accomplishments via application and election by the membership application review committee. Minimum requirements are 10 years of responsible charge in the grade of member and a professional engineer (P.E.) or Professional Land Surveyor (P.L.S.) license. Only about 3% of ASCE members hold the Fellow title.
