Have you ever wondered about the opportunities that exist for engineers within the various military branches? What types of projects are designed and built by the Navy? The Air Force? The Army Corps of Engineers? Is there opportunity to work on international projects?
Join us on Monday, November 9th at 3:30 at 130 Park Shops for a panel discussion with Rear Admiral Douglas G. Morton, and Mr. James C. Dalton, Senior Executive Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, both alumni of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering. With decades of experience in the military and government, their perspectives will illuminate the opportunity for civil engineers within their organizations.
