Announcements & Accolades

With the support of the Oregon ASCE Section and the PSU Civil and Environmental Engineering Department’s sponsorship, we were able to provide the following opportunities to our members:

Impostor Syndrome
Where: Engineering Building room 92
When: Thursday, February 16th, 5:00-7:00pm
Impostor Syndrome is a chronic condition where people dismiss their success as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be.
ASCE and MCECS Student Services will be hosting a discussion panel on impostor syndrome. Engineering professionals will be talking about their experience with impostor syndrome and taking your questions. Cheryl Foster, a licensed psychologist from SHAC, will be introducing the subject.
Snacks and refreshments will be available during the event.

Lunch & Learn: Cascadia Subduction Zone
Where: EB 310
When: Thursday, February 23, 12pm – 1pm
Ivan Wong will be describing what we know and don’t know in terms of the earthquake potential of the CSZ megathrust and its impacts, and how the available information is being used by the engineering community to not only develop seismic design criteria for new buildings, facilities, and structures but probably most challenging, assessing the seismic stability of our existing inventory.
