Why aren't there more options for hybrid/online master's programs within civil engineering? If there are hybrid or online options, why aren't these publicized more? Let me explain, I started graduate school in 2020 which means that it started as an online school. Last semester I had one class hybrid ...

I had an amazing 7th through 9th grade teacher (Mr. Last) who really taught me the fundamentals of mathematics and thus sparked my interest in math, physics, and engineering. I tutored several times over the past few years. and when I tutor I hope that I can help a person understand and enjoy math and ...

I had a professor that would create a new folder each year for the current class and copy all the updated lectures, books, and references each year. This took up so much space having copies of the same lectures over and over and over... that more online storage was needed.  Sometimes when someone is ...

A recruiter reaches out to you with a job that is a "perfect fit with someone of your expertise" so you sigh and open the email reluctantly wondering what job could be so perfect. To your lack of surprise, the job has no relation to engineering or even the construction industry at all! I'm sure you've ...

A colleague of mine told me that a prior company of theirs didn't want to sign off on their PE hours.  I'm not certain how or why a company would do that so I wanted to ask this forum. What would prevent you or a company from signing off on an employee's PE hours? ------------------------------ Daniel ...

Now that a  lot of people are back in the office, at least part-time, some may no longer have the luxury of eating homemade lunch and moreover eating whatever they want.  This led me to a curious thought: What is the worse food that people eat in the office?  Do you have any other "food at work" experience ...

Shouldn't there be a level of trust that the employee won't browse the internet during work hours? I understand that employers would not want an employee distracted during work hours. An employer can rightfully say: "If you don't go onto distracting sites then why would you care if the site is blocked?" ...

When I was younger (I'm talking waaay younger, about 10 years old,) I remember seeing people in business suits and sitting at desks (most often bankers sitting by the windows) and I thought "Wow! I want to wear a suit and have my very own desk one day." My 10-year-old thoughts have stuck with me and ...

I would like to think I would still be in the construction industry. I was always handy and liked construction so I'd imagine I would be some sort of contractor.  A more recent development has been cooking. Over the past 5 years, I have cooked more and more. Now I am at the point where I make my own ...

Joseph, I understand your point but couldn't that be said for every industry? (Except marketing) Do you think that as engineers we should be doing more outreach and awareness? (Locally or Broadly) ------------------------------ Daniel Bressler EIT, A.M.ASCE Structural Engineer Brooklyn NY ----- ...

Great point James! I appreciate how referenced Mechanics of Materials as an example. Growth is most definitely accompanied by both stress and strain. ------------------------------ Daniel Bressler EIT, A.M.ASCE Structural Engineer Brooklyn NY ------------------------------

From one engineer to another, Happy Engineer's Week! It seems that the only people who take note of engineer's week are other engineers (sometimes not even then). I think Engineer's Week can be a great way for people to learn the importance of current and past Civil Engineers. It would be nice for the ...

Last year I (somewhat randomly) decided to start listening to audiobooks instead of the radio or music during my car rides, walks, trips to school, sites visits, etc.  Over the past several months I have been able to finish quite a surprising amount of content. I realized that by listening to audiobooks ...

You make a great point! Would you consider embellishment by omission? For example, instead of rating your proficiency on each technical skill you simply list all of them. Would you view it as acceptable? I've had a resume coach tell me that this is standard and if the interviewer questions you about ...

ASCE Mentor Match is a great program, one I have been a participant for almost three years.  I started off as a mentee and more recently have begun mentoring new graduates in finding a job or internship. I was originally hesitant about being a mentor because I didn't think I have anything to add being ...

I think @Christopher Dzidek speaks to a great point that to achieve these grand-scale ideas we must break them into digestible pieces. I personally always have a few short-term goals which vary month to month or even week to week. I also have several long-term ones (which I mentally update every month).  ...

Andre, You make a great point! I have experienced that I have recently begun offering solutions using non-traditional methods of connections (such as using plates or angles to reinforce members as needed).  I most certainly wouldn't have thought nor suggested these 2 years or even a year ago!   I believe ...
