Engineers’ Society News

Despite the Pittsburgh Engineers’ Building remaining closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a busy fall season.

Most notably both our International Bridge Conference and International Water Conference were conducted on a virtual platform in late-October and early-November, respectively. Preparation leading up to these events in the “new virtual world” really made for a challenge! Still, both events were very well attended, and received very positive reactions from our Conference attendees according to their survey responses. Additionally, our Program Committee continues to offer continuing education events, although delivered through the webinar format. Look for new events coming up in December – likely to remain on the webinar format.

ESWP Program Success!

Almost 200 registrants for the ESWP Program Committee webinar “Steel Bridges in the 21st Century,” presented by Dr. Brandon Chavel, P.E. of the National Steel Bridge Alliance of AISC! This interesting program examined the history and future of steel bridges with consideration on life span, costs, maintenance, constructability and more! Dr. Chavel fielded many questions from webinar viewers as well as those viewing on Facebook live. Completion of the webinar entitled viewers to one Professional Development Hour (PDH). Join us for our next program on Thursday, October 1 on the Bonner Bridge presented by Nick Burdette, P.E.
