This UV-light ‘bug zapper’ can decontaminate 600 N95 masks an hour

Ingenuity in the time of COVID-19. A team of engineers designed the device over Zoom and coordinated socially distant drop-offs of materials.

The best option is for doctors to not reuse masks, but during the shortages of the last few months, a team of engineers from Lehigh University helped a nearby hospital come up with a stopgap solution to make reusing masks safer.

It’s never too late to be a civil engineer. Just ask ASCE member Michelle Calcagno.
After 18 years as a construction laborer, she returned to school to become a structural engineer. As she prepares to graduate this month, she shares her story in the hope that it will inspire others to pursue their passion: https://bit.ly/2Wzt4Sm.

"Are we to believe that because one is an engineer, one is not preoccupied by beauty in one's constructions, or that one does not seek to create elegance as well as solidity and durability?" - Gustav Eiffel
On this day in 1889, the Eiffel Tower officially opened to the public at the Universal Exposition in Paris.

Hello ASCE family, I hope this message finds everyone well. My name is Kevin Kunz and I wanted to take a moment and share with you an innovative permeable pavement that we've invented at AquiPor Technologies. Our mission is simple, to keep the raindrops where they fall. As we all know, cities across our country are being hit with more intense storms that are dropping more rain and at a faster rate. Our goal is to provide resilience at the curb line of our cities and help alleviate the overall volume of stormwater from entering our pipes and tanks. More info on our technology can be found here: https://www.startengine.com/aquipor The reason I am reaching out is because we are seeking individuals who are in the industry and asking them to share our campaign with people in their networks that may have interest in our technology. Our hope is to get the conversation started about our technology and concept organically. How else can this technology be implemented into existing infrastructure? Who else would you suggest we reach out to? If you have any thoughts or questions, please let me know. We are ambitious in solving some of these major water issues that communities are experiencing coast to coast, and be able to do so relatively quickly as these problems are being magnified. The 100 or even 500 year storm is now happening every season in some areas. We feel as though the time to act for stormwater is now, and your help in sharing our message would aid in the mission. Thanks for your time, and we hope you and everyone at the ASCE family is safe and well during these trying times. - Kevin Kunz
