Student Days at Pipelines 2010
August 29 – September 1, 2010 in beautiful Keystone, Colorado, the Construction Institute (CI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will present its signature Student Days to create, for engineering students and faculty, a unique real-world engineering experience that will give a practical perspective to the pipeline industry through educational sessions and networking with a variety of industry professionals.
Students will join an international audience representing all sectors of the engineering industry at the ASCE Pipelines Conference 2010. There will be opportunities to attend a workshop and hear expert panelists cover topics including pipeline issues in water, wastewater, oil and gas industries from a variety of perspectives. Attendees will hear from speakers representing areas of infrastructure assessment and monitoring, construction, design, and planning, in addition to learning about new and emerging technologies. Top it all off with a technical tour at the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
CI has developed the CI Student Day’s program which is specially designed to introduce Civil Engineering students to the wide variety of professional career options after graduation and provide opportunities to experience some of those first-hand. In the past two years, CI has worked closely with ASCE local sections and industry leaders in California, Texas and New York to bring students a program rich with interactive presentations on technical advancements in the field.Â A key feature of the program is that students are provided with job search advice as they network throughout the program with corporate sponsors and recruiters.
