Since 1908, the Civil and Environmental Engineering department has taught students the mechanics behind keeping a civilization running. Many of our students have gone on to become successful and respected alumni, including A. James Clark.

Clark graduated in 1950. Today, he is the chief executive officer of Clark Enterprises, whose biggest subsidiary is Clark Construction. Clark Construction has built some of our favorite places in Washington, D.C., such as Nationals Park and the Verizon Center.

Lloyd "Mac" McGill is another famous alumnus. He was one of only 17 civil engineers to graduate in 1939. He paid for his education by working as a dishwasher, university police officer, and musician. In 1944 he received a mining assignment, which provided the ore for the first atomic bombs used in the Manhattan Project. He is best known for his chimney design, which could withstand an earthquake.

If you would like to learn more about our alumni, read Civil Remarks, our bi-annual newsletter. You may also view the newsletter on the website. We invite our alumni to contact us with their information and news so that we may share it with the engineering community.

Many of our student projects have involved the commitment and support of our corporate partners, some of which are led by our alumni. We thank these alumni for giving guidance, wisdom and professional experience to our students.
