Presenter: Robin Kemper, 2018 ASCE President-Elect

Future of civil engineering:  Zero-energy Movement

Robin Kemper, ASCE President-Elect

Please plan to join both ASCE Northern Colorado Branch and the student ASCE chapter at CSU as we have the privilege of having Robin Kemper share about the importance and future of civil engineering and ASCE.  She will also share about ASCE Society Initiatives and Vision.  There will be time for questions and answers at the end.

Optional Tour:  Prior to Mrs. Kemper speaking, there will be an optional tour of the Engineering Research Center (ERC).  ERC contains many research facilities of multiple engineering disciplines including the Hydraulic Research Facility.  This is a world class facility comprised of flumes and associated equipment for hydraulic model studies and hydraulic research.  It supports research, trains undergraduate and graduate students, and provides hydraulic testing and support services.  Please RSVP Alex Liston <> via email.  Alex can also be emailed if you have questions.  The tour participants will meet at the ERC front entrance at 4:30 p.m.  The ERC is located near the west end of Laporte Ave on the south side of the street.
