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.

Soft Doesn't Mean Easy

By Jeff Braun, P.E. Engineering involves math and science, right? Long enough ago that I don’t want to say how long ago it was, I was a high school student who enjoyed my physics and math classes more than the history and literature readings. I loved tinkering with mechanical toys and seeing how they worked, checking out bridges and buildings to see what kept them from falling down. I loved my drafting class, where I was able to create plans for a house I may want someday.

Do You Believe in Luck?

By Jeff Braun, P.E. I had the opportunity to participate as part of industry panels for two of our Branch’s student chapters over the past couple of weeks, where we discussed how students can best position themselves for internships and career opportunities.  We discussed job search resources, developing a personal brand, networking, resume hints, and interviewing skills.  I was very impressed with the honesty students showed when sharing concerns and fears, and their motivation to invest the time and effort to best position themselves for their career.   The conversations between the attendees and panel members were inspiring, and led me to think back to my job search experiences.  I recall one of the interviews involved writing a short one-page response to a comment/question of my choosing from a list of options.  One of the questions jumped out to me right away: “Do you believe in Luck?”

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.
