When I was about five years old, I remember my parents and grandparents talking about how often I’d play with Tonka trucks in our sandbox. They said I was going to grow up and have something to do with construction. Many years later in high school after taking the SAT, I can remember my teacher telling me that I would be successful in a career with computers or engineering because I was good at math and science. What really inspired me was when I was working for a construction company building highways and bridges… then it all came together and I changed my major from electrical engineering to civil.
I THINK CIVIL ENGINEERS AFFECT THE LIFE AND WELFARE OF HUMANITY JUST AS MUCH AS DOCTORS. Where would civilization be without engineers who designed it? For example – water to drink because lakes were built to store it and treatment plants to clean it to make safe to drink; sanitary sewer treatment plants; flood control; safe transportation systems to transport our necessary resources are vital. Helping someone in time of tragedy is a hero. Helping tragedies not occur is an engineer. Being part of this is an amazing honor.
