At its core, civil engineering is a service-driven profession.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that so many young civil engineers enter the profession motivated to help their communities, near and far.
On today’s episode of ASCE Plot Points, we look at that culture of kindness. The executive director of Engineering Without Borders USA, Cathy Leslie, talks about her work, about EWB-USA, and what she sees in today’s young engineers (2:56).
In this week’s Changing the World segment, we hear from two Colorado State University students, Cheyenne Maio-Silva and Jasmine Akers, who are working on a Community Engineering Corps project in South Dakota (12:47).
And finally, our Member Memos crew tells us how their civil engineering work is giving back to the community (15:36).
