Fall 2021 Newsletter
A Message from the Chair

Dear Civil and Environmental Engineering Community,
It has been a pleasure seeing students, faculty and staff back on campus this Fall 2021 semester. While our nation is facing numerous challenges, the students, staff, and faculty of the John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) have been busy implementing strategic initiatives that continue to place our department and NJIT on the world map. While NJIT is constantly changing and improving, one thing that remains the same is our exceptional and dedicated faculty in CEE who work with our outstanding students on academic, cutting-edge research and service activities that benefit our society. 
I am pleased to welcome Dr. Rayan H. Assaad as a tenure-track assistant professor in CEE who started this Fall 2021 semester. Dr. Assaad came to us from Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), where he received a Ph.D. in civil engineering. Dr. Assaad’s main research interests include management of infrastructure assets including bridges, dams, and transportation systems; computational methods and applied machine learning to address emerging challenges in the industry; modeling, simulation, and optimization of construction operations.
This semester, we founded and hosted the first 3D Printed Bridge Competition. The idea originated through our esteemed Industrial Advisory Board in an effort to challenge students from regional high schools and colleges to conceive, design and 3D print modules of bridges meeting requirements of the rules. The modules were assembled and load tested to a specified deflection during the competition. The NJIT team tied first place with Princeton University’s team in the collegiate division, while the Academy of the Oranges won first place in the high school division.
I invite you to read over some of our recent news through this CEE Fall 2021 Newsletter. As always, I sincerely appreciate and welcome your support of our department’s academic, research and service initiatives. 
On behalf of CEE, I wish you happy holidays and the upcoming New Year 2022!
Please join me in reading some of our recent highlights below. Stay safe.

Concrete Solutions to Climate Change: How Local Policy Can Promote Sustainable Construction Activities
About Author: Matthew P. Adams is a Richard P. Nathan public policy fellow at the Rockefeller Institute of Government and an assistant professor in the John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

The American Jobs Plan proposed by President Biden is, at its core, an infrastructure improvement bill. If passed, it aims to repair 20,000 miles of highway and 10,000 bridges, and repair, replace, or expand water infrastructure, schools, hospitals, and government buildings. All of this work would require a massive investment in construction materials, such as concrete, wood, asphalt, and steel. The proposed bill also seeks to prioritize sustainability in the choice of construction materials and practices. Concrete, which is the second most used material in the world, would play a central role in the construction and rehabilitation that comes with this proposed infrastructure investment, however, it also has a significant carbon footprint. While methods of decreasing the environmental impact of concrete have been developed, they have not been broadly adopted by producers. As discussed in this brief, flexible municipal policies that can adjust for local availability of materials, project specific needs, and funding, can offer a model for encouraging adoption of low-embodied carbon concrete. Further, existing municipal-level policies may scale to the state and federal level.

Department Highlights
Fall 2021 CEE Graduate Seminar Series
Each semester, the department hosts the series, Graduate Seminars. The seminar features a prominent guest speaker from industry or academia and spans current topics in structural, geotechnical, and environmental engineering, as well as transportation. The seminars are organized by Professor William H. Pennock and are held Monday afternoons.

Topics included:

NEW CEE Graduate Certificates!
The CEE Department offers a number of graduate certificate programs, which give students the opportunity to:
  • improve skills in their current occupation
  • acquire knowledge to pursue new careers
  • explore emerging fields before committing

The certificate provides expertise to analyze, design and construct infrastructure. Graduates of the program use in-depth knowledge to analyze, design and construction of infrastructure to ensure that the infrastructure is designed and implemented with best practices in mind. This requires the ability to perform sophisticated analysis and design, coupled with the ability to perform forensic analysis. It also requires the ability to develop and maintain tools and technologies to enhance the design and construction of infrastructure.

This program prepares individuals to apply geotechnical engineering principles, which deal with the analysis, design, inspection, and construction of earth and earth-supported structures to the application of environmental problems, such as waste containment, waste disposal, construction of landfills, soil permeation, soil analysis, and soil improvement. Includes instruction in soil mechanics, soil dynamics, soil behavior, waste management and containment systems, geosynthetics, geochemistry, earth structures, geo-environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering, foundation engineering and tunneling.

Student Highlights
CEE Student Senate Representatives
Amid a hectic and arduous year, the student senate representatives have been putting some interesting projects into the works. With an initial go-ahead, they have started to compile a CEE/NCE student handbook which would be distributed to all students during their freshman seminar course. The handbook is made to be informative in many different aspects from information on what NJIT has to offer to basic soft skills tips. The representatives saw a need for this because NJIT has a plethora of resources and new programs constantly being rolled out. It’s important for NJIT to see a response from the student body in order to quantify the value and effectiveness of said programs.

Student representative Jonathan Martinez shared, "For the coming semester, we hope to begin working on details for a civil engineering tutoring center. Previously, the hope was to have an NCE tutoring center but due to lack of space, the idea is now being broken up between the departments. Last year, Lara Rios, the previous civil engineering representative, spoke with the department about tutoring hours, tutors, and what classes to provide tutoring for. Her work with the department was pushed aside for the NCE tutoring center but will be rediscussed in the spring."

Lastly, a feedback session will be hosted early in the semester to get an idea of what civil engineering students are dealing with and what they want to see changed in the department! These events are extremely important in regards to understanding all the problems our constituency faces and your attendance would be greatly appreciated.

An innovator in 2021 New Business Model Competition
Hosted annually during the fall semester, the New Jersey Innovation Acceleration Center runs the New Business Model Competition. Many entrepreneurs submit practical innovative ideas for review by a panel of judges at a chance to win a $2,500 summer fellowship to pay them to work on their idea. Although submission is free, each submission must follow the guidelines of the NAVC program.

The purpose of completion is to showcase a product within the technology discipline. The participants had seven minutes to convince a panel of six judges followed by a five minutes Q&A session that their product was the most innovative. For the competition, the participants were asked to define a product and elaborate on the benefits and the commercial usefulness of the product. The participants identified a target audience, market size and feasibility for the product. The event offers two tracks where participants could compete as students or as community members in NJ.

Participant and CEE Ph.D. candidate, Catarina Baptista-Pereira shared, "I am pleased that I was one of the eight finalists of the student track competition, which was open to students from all kinds of backgrounds and from different NJ universities. In this event, I was able to present part of my Ph.D. work and I am so happy I got third place!"

Baptista-Pereira was also awarded a spot in the NJIT Lean Startup Summer Accelerator Program ($25K value) which teaches entrepreneurs how to drive a startup, how to steer when to turn, and when to persevere and grow a business with maximum acceleration. Additionally, Catarina was offered a $3K Innovation Acceleration Fellowship.

2021 Graduate Student Association Research Day
NJIT's annual Graduate Student Association Research Day returned to the campus this semester, after being cancelled last year because of COVID, with 39 students who are pursuing doctoral and master's degrees showcasing their cutting-edge research on topics such as the pandemic, climate, transportation and.

Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) students had the most submissions,10 out of the 39 student submissions. The CEE department also contributed to this event with 3 faculty members serving as judges; Professor Matthew Bandelt, Professor William Pennock and Professor Wen Zhang.

This event gave the graduate students in the CEE department a chance to present their work and practice their public speaking and also the opportunity to network with fellow Master's and Ph.D. students from different departments within NJIT.

Bruno Souza, a Ph.D. candidate in the CEE department shared, "This experience was extremely valuable to all graduate students and it will certainly prepare us for future conferences and development in our professional career."

Brian McGlew Named To America East
All-Academic Team
Fifth year Brian McGlew has once again been named to the America East Cross Country All-Academic team, the conference announced Wednesday afternoon. 

McGlew, who was one of two Highlanders to earn All-Academic honors during the Spring 2021 campaign, did so again in Fall 2021 with strong credentials.

The East Windsor native and eight-time NJIT Dean's List honoree is in his first semester of graduate school after graduating Summa Cum Laude from NJIT with a degree in Civil Engineering and a grade point average of 3.97.

On the course, McGlew was NJIT's top finisher in four of their six meets this season and produced a collegiate PR at the Highlander XC Challenge on October 2 (5th overall, 25:33.87).

Molly Saylor, named Second Team All-Conference
America East
Saylor was named Second Team All-Conference and also earned a spot on the America East All-Academic Team. The South Park, PA native led the America East in total saves (99) and shutouts (8), and shutouts per game (.444) while placing in the top five in saves per game (5.50, 4th). Saylor is now tied for the NJIT school in career shutouts, tying former Highlander great Amelia Sapirman (2016-18). She also eclipsed 200 career saves this season (247 entering Sunday) and matched her career-best of ten saves in a game twice this year (Aug. 29 at Pittsburgh, Oct. 14 at UMBC). Saylor also registered her first career point against Binghamton on Oct. 10 - an assist on an Angela Harris score.

Academically, Saylor has maintained a grade point average of 3.80 and will graduate NJIT with a degree in civil engineering.

CEE Students Take Annual Trip to World Trade Center
CEE's Muhammad Elgammal and his students visited the World Trade Center complex in New York City to explore some of the site’s engineering features. Elgammal says "It is an opportunity to see and appreciate some of the world's largest engineering projects right here in our backyard."

Elgammal previously worked for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), which is headquartered in Tower four and is the principal owner of the site. More notably, as a senior at NJIT, he worked as an intern in the Material Engineering Unit for the PANYNJ, testing construction materials at Tower 1 and the Transportation Hub.

The class had discussions surrounding the balance of architecture, aesthetics, and engineered elements. Elgammal stated that “As beautiful as the site is, it came with a host of problems on both ends of the spectrum. The projects associated with the complex feature some of the very real challenges in achieving a constructible design in consideration of other disciplines outside the civil engineering practice. Schedule and budget control were also critical components of this project's portfolio.”

At the end of the evening, the group gathered for a roundtable discussion and shared some reflections over the past year as many of the students in attendance are due to graduate. Elgammal said, "In spite of their collective and unique challenges as students and considerably over the last year— they demonstrate personal resolve, resilience, and enthusiasm for the future.”

Luan Batista, a senior said, "During the roundtable, we discussed the importance of engineering ethics and its relevance post-graduation-- it's really a 'make or break' for your career. For me, it was the most valuable topic of discussion, and it is not addressed enough. Always striving to be the best in our careers but never forgetting that our first obligation is to the greater good of society."
Alumni Highlights
Q+A with Margarita Restrepo
Margarita Restrepo graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engerning in 2016 and a Master of Science in Geotechnical Engineering in 2017. Margarita was part of the society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and the student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers during her time in NJIT. She currently is a Senior Geotechnical Engineer at Langan Engineering & Environmental Services.

Below are insights into her professional journey:
What do you like most about your job? What I truly love about my job is the challenges it presents. Every day is different and I take these challenges as an opportunity to grow and become a better engineer.

What initially attracted you to CEE? Both of my parents are civil engineers. Right out of high school I chose to go into a pre-med program and found out that it did not interest me as much as civil engineering. When it was time to decide on a new major I chose civil engineering because it was the one that interested me the most.

Who were your biggest mentors at NJIT, and what did you learn from them? My biggest mentors at NJIT were professor Matt Riegel and Dr. John Schuring. They really helped kick my career in to gear in the geotechnical field and provided me with opportunities to grow professionally. Both of them possess great experience and knowledge in and out of the classroom which was very helpful when transitioning to the professional world.

Are there any particular university programs that helped you? I was an active member of ASCE and SHPE student chapters during my time at NJIT. I continue to be involved with the ASCE North Jersey Branch.

What skills did you gain from your internship, co-op, or work study? I gained the technical skills needed to put the theories we learned in the classroom into practical engineering solutions while also gaining important construction experience.

What was the hiring process like? The hiring process for me after graduating was fairly easy. While completing my senior year I was offered an internship opportunity by Professor Riegel after taking his class. That internship turned into a full-time job offer after I graduated with my bachelor’s degree.

How did you pitch yourself? I was very confident in my skills because I had set my mind on the career path that I wanted to take (geotechnical engineering) and showed my eagerness to learn and succeed in that field. I also highlighted my work ethic and passion for this discipline.
Why was it important to you to obtain your PE license? It was very important for me to obtain my PE license because it was the next big milestone in my career. Obtaining my PE license opened doors for me and it was a very important step into furthering my professional career and where I want to take it.

What made you confident that you'd prevail? I am a very hard worker and very passionate about geotechnical engineering. I knew that no matter the situation, with the right technical guidance (which I have luckily had) I would be able to succeed as an engineer.

Are you a first-generation student? No. However, I am the first one in my family to graduate in the United States.

How do you feel being a female/Latina in an engineering profession? I wear it as a badge of honor. I love being a latina engineer and helping develop younger latinx engineers. I volunteer in many outreach events because I want to show the younger latina generation that there is a space for us in this profession. I also want to show in general that even though we are a very small demographic in civil engineering, we are out there and eager to succeed.
Where did you grow up, and how big is your family? I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia and moved to New Jersey when I was 15 years old. I have two younger sisters. One of them turned out to be a civil engineer as well!

What did you learn from them that stays with you today? I learned that through hard work anything is possible. But most importantly to treat others with kindness and to always be the change we want to see.

What does it mean to your family and friends to see you thrive in college and a career in CEE? My parents are very proud of my education and my career. My dad also works in the construction field and now he calls me for advice! My friends are also very happy that I chose a career I love and that I am able to succeed in.

What would you like your legacy to be? Long term I would love to get into teaching college courses. I think it is important for young students to find mentors that they could identify with. I also could see my career continue to grow.
