CE 497/499 Capstone Class Project Featured in Scouting Magazine
November 1, 2011
Over the summer, the Department of Civil Engineering received the prestigious 2011 NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education. The grand prize, worth $25,000, was awarded to the CE Department because of a project completed during the Fall 2010 semester by civil engineering and construction management students in the CE 497/499 Capstone Design Course, taught by Dr. Andrew Schuler. Students worked closely with professional engineer mentors to design infrastructure improvements for a youth ranch located in the foothills of the Sangre de Christo Mountains - the Gorham Scout Ranch.
The project was a success on many levels and gave students a chance to work on a significant, real-world engineering problem. Scouting magazine recently wrote an article for the November/December 2011 issue of the publication that features the project and highlights its success.
