Education and Professionals Integration Committee
The goal of the Education and Professionals Integration Committee (EPIC) is to offer educational opportunities primarily for students in high school. Our focus is to acquaint the student with the practice of civil engineering, and for the student to learn more about the infrastructure that supports our everyday life.
The committee encourages practicing civil engineers to engage with high school classes by giving a presentation or participating in a class activity within an already established civil engineering component.
We believe that learning about civil engineering from civil engineers in our community is compatible with programs like Project Lead the Way, and other Technology overview classes. It is an ideal ‘bolt-on’ to an existing program, and also fills a need where there is no specific civil engineering component.
