Student Activities

Students in the civil engineering program have many opportunities to participate in undergraduate research, student competitions, and hands on projects as part of their program. Learning to become an engineer requires understanding the theory, but also being able to put those theories into practice. Below is a small sample of current activities that involve our students.

ASCE MidPacific Student Conference                                                                                                                                                                                                         
The Pacific ASCE Student Chapter participated in the 2019 ASCE MidPacific Student Conference hosted by San Jose State University.  Tigers competed in the Water Treatment, Geowall, and Mead Paper competitions, as well as  mini games.  Preparing for the conference competitions provides great opportunities for students to put their education into practice and develop communication and teamwork skills as they work closely with students from other years and other majors.  Thanks to all our sponsors whose generous donations made it possible for us to take approximately 25 students to MidPac.  Looking forward to MidPac 2020! Orange!  Black!  Tiger Attack!  Roar!!  Go Tigers!

 Mono Lake Adventures Returned in 2017
Dr. Gary Litton and Dr. Camilla Saviz took a group of students and alumni on a trip to Mono Lake in July.  The 3-day action-packed tour included a stop at the Columns of the Giants near Ebbetts Pass, a trip to Bodie State Historic Park and a tour of the Stamp Mill where ore was crushed to extract gold, a visit to South Tufa, a bird-watching walk, a hike along Mill Creek, a hike in the Fissures on Black Point, and a hike out to Wapama Falls at Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.  The group camped along the south shore of Mono Lake, enjoyed beautiful sunsets, heard coyotes singing, and of course, ate at the Whoa Nellie Deli and a new favorite, the Epic Café. Stay tuned for future trips!
