The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) honored Ryan Kobbe, PE with the 2020 President’s Medal at the ASCE Annual Convention in October. Kobbe who serves as a Structural Engineer for T-O Engineers, was a recipient of the medal for his ‘dedicated service to ASCE student members both as an inspirational University of Wyoming Faculty Advisor and as an astute leader and student advocate within the Society’.
Civil engineering and structural engineering are two disciplines that are commonly confused. Say you're working on a commercial building project or are designing a bridge to be built in your city. Do you need a civil engineer or a structural engineer for these projects? Your first instinct may be to assume that the commercial building project requires a structural engineer because it is… well, a structure. Likewise, you may assume that the bridge requires a civil engineer, because it's "relating to ordinary citizens and their concerns" (as goes the definition of 'civil').
