Vermont Tech is pleased to announce that a team comprised of Alyshia Jones from Randolph, VT, David Cacciamani from Hyde Park, VT and William A. Moore IV of Milton, VT placed first in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering Institute’s (SEI) Student Design Competition. All three individuals are 2014 graduates of the Architectural Engineering Technology Bachelor’s program at Vermont Tech. The project submitted for the competition involved selection of an appropriate structural system, determination and application of appropriate design loads, and development of construction documents and plans illustrating how the system would perform.
“We could not be more proud of these Vermont Tech graduates. Not only was their design of professional quality, their presentation at the ASCE Structures Congress in Portland, Oregon demonstrated poise and style that many long-time practitioners in the audience envied,” said Scott Sabol, P.E., professor of Architectural & Building Engineering Technology at Vermont Tech and faculty adviser to the project. “To do so well against schools many, many times the size of Vermont Tech only goes to show the strength of the Architectural Engineering Technology program.”
Last year, a student team comprised of Constantin Condrat, Tyler Gendron and Stephen Wichmann, also graduates of the Architectural Engineering Technology Bachelor’s program at Vermont Tech, took 3rd place in the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) competition for heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning design for the same building.
