FAMU-FSU Wins Engineering Award

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Florida A&M University–Florida State University College of Engineering is the grand prize winner of the 2009 National Council of Examiners for Engineering Surveying (NCEES) Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education.

The department received the prize for its submission, “Senior Capstone Course: Collection of Projects with Featured Everglades Restoration Project.” Through its capstone course, students learned about nontechnical professional issues, such as ethics, teamwork, and communication skills, and completed a design of a civil or environmental engineering project. Professional practitioners participated by giving classroom lectures, providing real-world design projects, mentoring students, and evaluating students’ results. The featured senior design project included student teams working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on two restoration projects in the Florida Everglades.

The jury praised the project for demonstrating “strong interactions of practitioners with the engineering faculty and students.”

The NCEES Engineering Award recognizes engineering programs that demonstrate meaningful partnerships between professional engineers and students. All EAC/ABET-accredited engineering programs were invited to enter projects that demonstrated such a partnership.

The 28 submissions were judged by NCEES members and representatives from academic institutions and professional engineering organizations.

“This is the first year we’ve offered the award,” said NCEES executive director Jerry Carter. “We’re very pleased with the interest we’ve had so far, and we look forward to building on these efforts to bring professional engineers and students together.”
