What do University of Evansville civil engineering graduates do for a living?

In the words of alumnus Dave Haas, P.E. (UE CE 2005), “Fun Stuff!”

This is the new labyrinth spillway that was designed by Haas and Brian McKenna (UE CE 1999), both professional engineers with Christopher B. Burke Engineering, LLC in Indianapolis. This spillway was constructed at the Beaver Creek Lake Dam near Jasper Indiana. One of the contractors for the project was Lutgring Brothers, LLC from Tell City, Indiana. Justin Martin (UE CE 2004) works for Lutgring and was involved in constructing this state-of-the-art spillway.

The project was completed on May 31, 2012.
