This award was established in 1985 in memory of Roger F. Weiss, a former UD civil engineering professor who was an active member of ASCE. Application for this award is open to all UD civil engineering students who are active members in the ASCE Student Chapter..
The book loan will be awarded to deserving students and consists of purchasing the technical books (math, science, engineering) required for the student’s registered schedule from the UD bookstore. Non-technical books (humanities based courses, general education courses) will not qualify for this award. If you the student has a UD Book scholarship, that amount will be applied to their required book purchases before the Weiss award (first to non-technical books, then technical books). The purchased books will be on loan to the student for the duration of the semester.
The Outstanding Civil Engineering Achivement Award is given in recognition of outstanding academic achievement, dedicated ASCE leadership and commitment to serving others and the community.
The candidates are nominated by the UD Civil Engineering faculty for the Outstanding Senior Award and then interviewed by the ASCE Dayton Section Education Committee.
