University Outreach

The Student Activities Committee consists of present and past practitioner advisors from University of California, Irvine, California State University, Long Beach, and California State University, Fullerton. The objective of the committee is to promote Student Chapter interaction with industry, professionals, and ASCE Orange County Branch and Los Angeles Section. We assist Student Chapter in administrative self management and provide a consistent format for incentive program review. Student Chapters are rewarded for achievements in both professional and academic environments. We promote Student Chapter membership retention in ASCE Student Chapter and conversion to the ASCE National Membership. In addition we assist the Orange County Branch with the Student Night in November and advertise the branch’s scholarship, which is awarded at the Los Angeles Section Younger Member Forum’s Student Night in the Spring.

Professional Development is NOT Optional

By Jeff Braun, P.E. As Civil Engineers, we are members of a profession, not a “job” or a “trade”.  As such, we are held to a higher standard by society and our peers.  As with other professions, such as doctors, teachers, and architects, engineers are expected to maintain their level of expertise and keep up with the latest state of the practice through continued learning and professional development. It is too easy to get lost in the weeds of the daily grind, focusing on publishing the next deliverable. Before you know it, you’re ten years down the road and you aren’t aware of the latest research, software, or modeling methods; putting you at a significant disadvantage to others in the industry.

How much do we know about what’s going on around us?

By Jeff Braun, P.E. I catch myself focusing on the task-at-hand so intently that I often blow right past the finer points of the experiences I’m lucky enough to be enjoying.  Whether I’m at work, or out having a good time, I often fail to slow down and learn more about the team I’m working with and the amazing experiences, skills, and talents they offer. ... Even in my role as Branch President I am amazed at what our fellow members are doing in their roles as engineers within their firms or agencies, as dedicated volunteers for ASCE committees or institutes, or through their support of charitable organizations.

Balance is the Key to Long-Term Happiness and Success

By Jeff Braun, P.E. Balance is the key to long-term happiness and success. The balance that immediately comes to most adults minds is the work-life balance. While this is important, it is not the balance I’m addressing in this message.  We all recognize the drive and hunger in our most successful role models and peers. They appear to never be satisfied with their current state, always looking for opportunities to learn more skills, become more efficient, and design and construct amazing projects to improve our built environment. We may hold these successful and motivated engineers in high regard for advancing our profession, but we must also take time to recognize our own achievements.
