May 11, 2017

Congratulations to the following Department of Civil Engineering students who received awards at the 2017 Whiting School of Engineering Convocation on May 8, 2017!

Awards were presented by Prof. Sauleh Siddiqui.


American Society of Civil Engineers Maryland Section Scholarship

The ASCE Maryland Section Scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate member of the Johns Hopkins ASCE student chapter for his or her outstanding academic merits as a student in the Department of Civil Engineering.

Recipient: Stephanie Coronado ’18


Civil Engineering Achievement Award

The Civil Engineering Achievement Award is given for outstanding academic performance by a graduating senior in the Department of Civil Engineering.

Recipient: Michael Bain ’17


Civil Engineering Faculty Recognition Award

The faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering recognize that some students excel in the classroom while also actively participating in leadership and community service opportunities in the broader community. We are proud to have these students represent the department.

Recipients: Sarah Westley ’17, Avital Zenilman ’17


Robert H. Scanlan Award

Robert H. Scanlan was a tireless researcher who made scholarly contributions to both theory and practice in the fields of engineering mechanics, aerodynamics, and the aeroelasticity of civil engineering structures. Dr. Scanlan worked in both the private and public sectors, abroad and in the U.S., as well as in academia. In 1984, at age 70, after a full career at Princeton, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty. He remained an active member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins, aiding the Department of Civil Engineering and its faculty, staff, and students, until his passing in 2001. Dr. Scanlan brought an indefatigable spirit to his work and made indelible contributions to wind engineering and to the study of bridge aerodynamics—topics that are critical to structural engineering practice. This award is presented to a student who demonstrates an interest in and ability to link engineering research to practice.

Recipient: Evelyn Torres-Alfaro ’17


Gerard H. Schlimm Award

The Gerard H. Schlimm Award is given to an undergraduate student for his or her exceptional accomplishments in the field of civil engineering. As a senior lecturer and director of the part-time and special programs at the Whiting School from 1966 to 1994, the late Dr. Schlimm made many contributions to the education of future engineers.

Recipient: Bryan Pon ’17
