2010 NCEES Engineering Award winners

Grandprize winner

The University of Delaware Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is the grand prize winner of the 2010 NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education. The award jury met March 25, 2010, in Clemson, S.C., to select the $25,000 grand prize winner.

The department received the prize for its submission, Pomeroy Trail East Annex (PDF). For the project, student teams competed to win a commission and perform the preliminary engineering for an expansion of a multi-user trail system in their city. The teams worked with engineering mentors from professional practice to consider drainage and environmental upgrades, wastewater system improvements, reevaluation of a proposed groundwater remediation program, and associated infrastructure improvements.

The jury praised the project for its “excellent integration of real-world experience in an educational setting.”
