Congratulations to Chloe Weber, recent graduate of the University of St. Thomas and new transportation graduate engineer in our Burnsville location! She was recently awarded the Distinguished Service Award from the Minnesota Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers. We are excited you have chosen us to kickstart your engineering career and can’t wait to see the contributions you will make to this field!
This award recognizes a student who has provided an extraordinary level of service the department. Chloe has served as an officer in ASCE for the past two years and also helped found the student chapter of APWA and served on its board. She has been the TA for Civil Materials and Surveying and has represented the department at many different professional venues. One of her most significant contributions has been her mentorship of younger students and helping to establish a culture of participation and community in our new department.
“I grew up in Chanhassen, Minnesota, and was strongly encouraged by my parents to pursue civil engineering, as I’ve always held a particular interest in architecture and infrastructure. I’m a fifth-year student at the University of St. Thomas, and I’ll be graduating in May with both a civil engineering degree and a business management degree. In my time at St. Thomas, I’ve had the privilege to serve on the ASCE student chapter executive board for the last three years, formerly as secretary now as vice president. I’m also the co-founder and current vice president for the student chapter of APWA at St. Thomas. I’ve been a TA for both the surveying and civil materials courses, and enjoy helping students with courses I’ve personally loved. After graduation, I will begin my career as a transportation engineer at Bolton & Menk.”
