The Pavements Faculty workshop is designed to provide graduate students, researchers, and postdocs with important information about preparing for their future academic careers. The workshop will consist of a panel addressing different issues of concern and opportunities for pavement engineering researchers and professionals seeking academic positions and success.

Presentation topics will range from navigating the job market to issues in teaching and pedagogy, to variety of professional opportunities available both inside and outside the academia. Panel discussions will also extend to institutions like APSE and its role to support them as current students (or postdocs) and future faculty member. Panelists will include professors at different stages in their careers to communicate their own experiences in their journey toward tenure.

Younger Member Session: Paving the Gap Between Different Generations of Civil Engineers 

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 | 5:15 - 6:30 pm | Sauganash West Room

Everyone welcome!

This conference event is geared for both younger and not so young engineers to learn how the different generations can work together successfully. The moderator will begin the session with a not too serious look at the differences between the generations, followed by a panel discussion. The four person panel will include two experienced engineers and two younger engineers . The experienced panelists will share what they wish they knew when they were younger. The younger panelists will share what makes their generation’s approach to civil engineering different from past generations, including what they wish the older generation knew about them. A lively discussion is anticipated that will be both informative and fun.
