Civil Engineering

As a Civil Engineer, I believe in not only a strong code of ethics as published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) but also in the importance of keeping the civil engineering profession strong to rebuild our country’s infrastructure.  A lot of people don’t understand  what all a civil engineer does.  According the ASCE, civil engineers design, build, and maintain the foundation for our modern society – our roads and bridges, drinking water and energy systems, sea ports and airports, and the infrastructure for a cleaner environment, to name just a few.

Civil engineering touches us throughout our day. Think of a civil engineer when you:

  • Turn on your tap to take a shower or drink clean water
  • Flick on your lights and open your refrigerator
  • Drive to work on roads and bridges through synchronized traffic lights
  • Take mass transit or take a flight for a vacation
  • Toss your empty coffee cup in the recycling bin

Spanning a Host of Specialties

Civil engineers often specialize in one of a number of technical areas. A few examples:

Time-Honored Civil Engineering Projects

The Golden Gate Bridge. The Eiffel Tower. The Hoover Dam. The creativity and innovative spirit of civil engineers is showcased in the projects they have created throughout the world. ASCE’s Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks program honors the best of those at least 50 years old.

Learning from Tragedy

Since the Johnstown Flood in 1889, ASCE has answered the call to study and learn from engineering failures due to natural disasters and man-made causes. These studies provide needed answers and new knowledge and become the basis for changes to building codes and engineering and construction practices to make the public safer.

Promoting Diversity and Inclusion

The future strength of the civil engineering profession will come from an engineering workforce that mirrors the population it serves.

Computers and the Internet

I have always had a passion for computers and coding that started in the late 1970s so it was inevitable that I found my way into the computer and website services.  As the age of computers dawned and computers worked into every aspect of our lives, I found my niche building computers not only for friends and relatives but I was also servicing Real Estate offices, Architectural Offices, and Engineering Offices.  I built and maintained computers and networks for several offices in my local area and still consult on computer issues as my side business.  It was also in the late 1990s that I saw a future in building and maintaining websites, long before anyone ever thought of anything like Facebook.  I have progressed through many different type of website construction methods over the years and try to keep current so my clients can receive the best service I can provide.  If you are looking to start a website, blog, online store, or just get your own personal email domain, send me an email and let’s talk about how I can help you.
