Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering wins $25,000 prize

The National Council for Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), an organization advancing licensing for engineers and surveyors, announced that the Marquette University Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering is the grand prize winner of the 2015 NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education.  The vehicle bridge was a project of the Marquette chapter of Engineers Without Borders and the department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering.

The department received the top prize for its submission, Sechum Vehicle Bridge. For the project, civil engineering students worked as part of a team that also included faculty, professional engineers with specific technical backgrounds to support each discipline on the project, other professionals and more than 100 community volunteers from the Mayan community of Sechum in Guatemala. The team designed and constructed a vehicle bridge, which impacted three rural communities seeking safe, reliable crossing of the Rio Pasaguay to access education, markets, and health care.

The award jury praised the project for its strong interaction with professional engineers as well as its improvements to the quality of life in this community.
