Favorite part: Every day is a different day. Some jobs is all about design, others I may be out of the office on a construction site checking to ensure that the work is being performed to specification.

Least favorite: With the new technology of computers, calculations are advanced to the point that wouldn't be imaginable 10 years ago

Day in Life: Picking up with jobs of the last day

Day in Life: Meetings and conference calls to ensure projects are going according to plans and changing the projects around the vendors

Why choose career: Versatility of the career and how broad the projects can be

Why choose career: Always something different and being a problem solver

Hardest part: Tough deadlines to meet

Hardest part: "People want the 'Cadillac design' of a project but only want to pay for the "Dodge style design'"

Classes: Calculus, Physics, Theory of materials, soil design, structural design, transportation systems.

Advice to be outstanding CE: Study and keep ahead. Keep an open mind to learn new things. Surround yourself with others that have a hard working personality like yourself.

This is a department with a very long history,” says Andrew Whittle, the head of MIT’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). That history, dating back to the Institute’s founding, is reflected in the department’s designation as Course 1 (of the many courses of study available to MIT students). But CEE is also a department that has changed significantly over time, as reflected in its renaming 20 years ago, when environmental engineering was added to its name.

 

That expansion is not so unusual: Many other civil engineering departments have added an environmental component in recent years. And in a way, the addition of the environment as a specific focus in the department was not such a great change from its traditional purview, Whittle says. Water supply and sewage systems, for example, always a strong component of civil engineering, necessarily involve a close understanding of the links between large manmade structures and their ecosystems. These have “always been a big issue in the civil engineering world,” says Whittle, the Edmund K. Turner Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, who has been teaching at MIT for three decades.

 

But MIT’s approach to civil and environmental engineering, he says, is exceptionally well integrated between studies at the very largest and the very smallest scales: bridges and buildings at one end, and microbial ecosystems at the other. Unlike its peer departments elsewhere, Whittle says, CEE requires all its students to spend a year in an intensive course that tightly integrates the civil and environmental sides of the discipline.

Michael Yango's curator insight, January 14, 2013 3:29 PM

The basic foundation of buildings in our towns and cities can be traced back to civil engineering. Civil engineering is a the branch of engineering which mostly revolves around the construction of public works. Public works include bridges, buildings, facilities, railroads, and other transportation. This career is for those who are under private firms or under government bureaucracies. A four year degree in civil engineering is required for the job, but typically, qualifications in this career vary depending on education. Civil engineers come up with designs and blueprints that can be implemented when building, or they can also inspect the foundation and safety of buildings. They also ensure that these structures that are built follow certain regulations in order to maintain safety and efficiency. In addition, these engineers build water systems such as sewage plants, dams, and levees. It is a difficult career and it has a huge effect on our every day lives. The job is interesting to have because of how much society depends on it. Overall, it is one branch of engineering that provides a lot of job opportunities. I think that civil engineering is a respectable career to take in life because it has a huge impact on us that we might not even realize. I think that there are a vast amount of options in engineering, and civil engineering is only one path. I am interested by this field and its main concepts.

Fascinating Construction Photos of World Famous Buildings and Bridges

Fascinating Construction Photos of World Famous Buildings and Bridges | Young Civil Engineering | Scoop.it

Empire State Building-1931

One of the reasons why great architecture is so much more than a work of art you can walk through: it’s awfully complicated to create. Explaining the poetic importance of the field, Frank Lloyd Wright, the greatest American architect of all time, made a lofty statement, claiming that “the mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”

If there’s one thing that these photos of grand buildings and bridges under construction confirms, it’s that being defined as the soul of humanity is well deserved. From the seemingly magical emergence of the Eiffel Tower to the eerie drama of an incomplete Brooklyn Bridge, take a look at the fascinating documentation of some of the world’s most famous designs as they’re being built.

COMMUNICATION | Vicksburg Engineers Celebrate EWeek

COMMUNICATION | Vicksburg Engineers Celebrate EWeek | Young Civil Engineering | Scoop.it

March 2013

By Sara Leach, ERDC PAO 

 

In a town said to have “more engineers per capita than any other American city,” it is only natural that Vicksburg engineers get excited about National Engineers Week (EWeek), which was celebrated Feb. 17-23. 

 

According to the National Engineers Week Foundation, EWeek “celebrates the positive contributions engineers make to society and is a catalyst for outreach across the country to kids and adults alike.” In fact, this year’s theme of “Celebrate Awesome” reflected just that, and was dedicated to all of the amazing things that engineers, engineering students and technicians do each day to make the world a better place. 

 

Vicksburg engineers celebrated the week with trips to local classrooms to educate students about the importance of choosing engineering as a career. The culmination of the week was an annual luncheon at the B’nai B’rith Literary Club in downtown Vicksburg, where Maj. Gen. John W. Peabody, Mississippi Valley Division commander and president of the Mississippi River Commission, served as keynote speaker. 

 

Dr. John Cullinane, ERDC deputy director, says he believes that EWeek is important because engineers are at the forefront of technological advance and progress.

 

“By offering the opportunity to cross engineering disciplines and bridge generations, EWeek allows us time to stop and collectively celebrate the accomplishments of our chosen profession,” he said. “EWeek provides a forum for the profession to communicate the valuable contributions of engineers to the general public.” 

 

USACE Chief of Engineers Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick is also very passionate about EWeek and the need to promote activities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). He recently commented in an EWeek memo that “by 2020, the United States expects more than 2.8 million STEM job openings and will need to increase the number of college graduates by approximately one million more STEM professionals to meet the demand.” 

 

With such shocking statistics, engineers at ERDC agree that celebrations like EWeek are now more important than ever.
