Students & New Professionals

If you are a student, a younger member, or a new professional, then this is the page for you! This page will highlight programming and rules for the 2022 Student Competitions, Student Chapters, and New Professionals content. This page will be updated as programming develops.

 

New Professionals Symposium Day

This year, EWRI is excited to offer up to five sessions (including mentoring) geared towards professionals who are new to their field. We will be offering technical sessions, professional development sessions, and a live mentoring session. In 2021 we offered sessions on SWMM, HEC-RAS, as well as a session on JEDI and Crucial Conversations in the workplace. Stay tuned for the sessions we will be offering this year!

 

Graduate Student Technical Paper Competition

The graduate student paper competition is a technical writing competition geared towards and graded for graduate-level students. The intent of the competition is to support the development of participants’ research writing skills, so it is anticipated and expected that students submitting the work are the primary authors of the paper and were responsible for its content.

  • For any work submitted that is the product of research supervised by a faculty adviser, the faculty adviser may be included as a second author.

  • The top three winners will receive complimentary registrations.

WSP Student Design Competition

The WSP Student Design Competition competition aims to provide learning opportunities for undergraduate senior students in solving real-life infrastructure problems and developing practical yet innovative solutions prior to entering the industry. Currently all undergraduate civil/environmental engineering programs are required to include a "capstone" design experience. Schools are strongly encouraged to participate in this exciting competition.

More information on the WSP Competition, and how to enter, will be coming soon!

 

EWRI Student Chapters

The Students and Education Council is calling for applications from students and faculty members (that work in areas relevant to the EWRI mission) that want to form new EWRI student chapters across the US, or that want to support existing EWRI chapters.

This is a great opportunity for students and faculty to have financial support and focus on developing students’ professional skills while working on the development of local, regional and national networks with the environmental and water resources community.
