Orange County Branch Newsletter
ASCE Life Member
By Ramesh Gupta, Ph.D, P.E.
I look forward to my participation in the activities of ASCE Orange County as your new secretary. My involvement with ASCE started at the University of Connecticut as a student member and I continued with ASCE activities in Maryland, Connecticut, and California. I was elevated to the status of Life Member on January 1, 2006. I have served in various capacities as a member and officer of The Connecticut Society of Professional Engineers and plan to use my more than 40 years of consulting and research experience in the field of civil engineering in serving as a board member of ASCE Orange County branch. Currently, I am working for Stantec Consulting Services Inc. in Irvine, CA as a senior project manager.
I have participated in the activities of ASCE throughout my professional career. As a board member of Orange County ASCE, I will devote my efforts to further goals and objectives of civil engineering profession and serve fellow members. The water we drink, the buildings we live, roads and bridges we use to travel, and other infrastructure facilities designed by civil engineers impact the daily lives of citizens of the Unites States and other countries in the world. Utilizing technical skills and professional experience, civil engineers are responsible for the efficient management of the available resources in providing leadership and quality services to the public. Working with other members of the board I plan to enhance awareness of the role civil engineers play in improving life of fellow citizens. As your secretary, I will be an active participant in the activities at the ASCE Orange County Section and in the national arena.
