BIG RED DOG in Aggieland

March 27, 2015 by Bailey Harrington

This week I had the privilege of traveling to College Station to speak with engineers in the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets as well as the student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for Texas A&M.

In the afternoon I met with the Corps of Cadet engineers to discuss my time in Army as a commissioned engineer officer both at Fort Hood as well as deployed to Afghanistan and as a civil engineer working with BIG RED DOG.   We also talked about the need for future leaders and engineers from institutions like Texas A&M both in military and civilian sector especially as Texas continues to experience this current population boom.

Proud to have been able to speak with the future military and civilian leaders at the A&M Engineer's Call

After speaking with the cadets, myself and leaders of the younger member groups of the Dallas and Houston ASCE branches spoke to the Texas A&M ASCE student chapter.  This discussion focused on the importance of professional organizations such as ASCE when leaving college.  In addition to the importance of professional organizations we provided insight for the student chapter about progressing in their engineering careers and becoming successful community leaders in the future.

Although I am not a Texas A&M graduate, I came away very impressed with the programs this university is currently running and am excited to see the future engineers and leaders this institution will produce.
