Walk-in registration at the door is still available for tonight’s special presentation, From Design through Construction: The Science and Engineering Hall Explained.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from a panel of engineers and architects about the challenges faced in the construction of the Science and Engineering Hall (SEH) on the university’s Foggy Bottom Campus. Clark Construction Project Executive Mark Goodwin will moderate a discussion about the internal and external considerations the engineers and architects faced during the building’s three-year construction.
The program, which is open to the entire GW community, is for non-engineers and engineers alike and will include Q&A.
From Design through Construction: The Science and Engineering Hall Explained
Thursday, September 18
6pm – 7:45pm
Elliott School, Room 113
1957 E Street, NW
The SEH is GW’s largest-ever capital construction project and is slated to open for classes in January 2015. It will be home to classes, faculty, and researchers from GW’s School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) and the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences.
Tonight’s event is sponsored by the Clark Engineering Scholars program, which was established in 2011 with an $8 million gift from A. James Clark, chairman of the board and CEO of Clark Enterprises Inc. Clark Scholars receive annual merit-based scholarships and leadership training. They also participate in a professional “boot camp” led by successful SEAS alumni, receive summer internship opportunities, attend regularly scheduled seminars, and take part in a semester abroad experience. Now in its fourth year, the program has four cohorts of Clark Scholars comprised of 25 GW engineering students.
The SEH represents a giant-leap forward in the university’s efforts to break new ground through both enhanced university facilities and collaborative research across disciplines. Programs like the Clark Scholars Program support GW students through scholarships, research and study abroad opportunities, and a learning community environment.
