Larson Design Group engineers Steven Beattie and Curtis Barrick recently spent time assisting Bucknell University civil engineering students with their senior project. Under the leadership of Professor Mike Toole, the students tackled an assignment involving large-scale institutional land development. Beattie and Barrick attended project scoping meetings, provided technical guidance, and reviewed the students’ progress throughout the semester.
Barrick, an alumnus of Bucknell, said he “found the mentoring experience particularly rewarding since this is the twentieth anniversary of my senior design project completion at Bucknell University.” Barrick noted, “I was impressed with their knowledge and I believe that rounding out their coursework with real world application, including the use of current design software, will give the students the edge needed to excel in a competitive job market.” Beattie agreed, adding, “Working with the senior engineering students over the past 6 months has been a fulfilling and enjoyable journey in guiding the students’ growth in research, design and presentation aspects of their final senior design project.”
