  5. 5. Employment opportunities for our graduates continue to remain strong. The primary difficulty in tracking graduate employment is in reporting - students leave after they graduate and are surprisingly hard to locate! The following table shows estimates of our placement record, with the caveat that we have not been able to query all graduates, so many are placed in the “unknown” category with respect to first employment after graduation. Table 5. Employment placement history for CE Department graduates.

  10. 10. IV. STUDENT CHAPTER AWARDS AND ACTIVITIES We have many active student organizations in the department. These range from student chapters of national professional societies (ASCE, ITE and AGC) to honor societies (Chi Epsilon) to state or local societies (MARLS and BREN Student Club). The following are summaries of the year’s activities for these vital and inspiring groups: AGC 2007-08 AGC activities included: Hot dog sales each Friday noon in Cobleigh Hall to partially fund the Reno competition trip. Attended the MCA Annual Convention in Kalispell, MT where Montana Contractors once again supported student chapter activities with their auction. Traveled to Reno, NV to participate in the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) annual estimating competition…this year three teams attended representing commercial; heavy civil; and LEED. Our Heavy Civil team took Region 6 First Place then went on to compete at the National ASC/AGC competition in Las Vegas, NV in March and took second place at the National level. AGC 2007-08 Officers Faculty Advisor: Penny Knoll President: Jared Hoesel Vice President: Jay Schroeder ASCE 2007-08 The Montana State University ASCE Student Chapter had a busy year, culminating with a trip to the regional student conference in Portland, Oregon in April 2008. Eight students and three faculty members were hosted by Portland State University, with a focus on the steel bridge and concrete canoe competitions. The steel bridge team competed well, while the chapter did not field a concrete canoe. The trip included fieldtrip stops at the first cable-stayed bridge in the U.S. (in the Tri-Cities, WA) and the Multnomah Falls State Park in Oregon. The year consisted of much more than the regional conference. The chapter had monthly member meetings, with the fall semester 2007 presentations on LEED, Unique Construction Projects in the Seattle Area, and ITS/Roadway Design. The spring semester 2008 speaker schedule included presentations on the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the structural engineering firm of KPFF, and the Cody Airport Expansion. The chapter assisted with the Southwest MathCounts contest in February, as well as a gumdrop bridge event in connection with MSU’s Engineerathon in March. Much effort was put forth to prepare for the 2009 PNW ASCE Student Regional Conference, which MSU will co-host with Carroll College. Kyle Applebury was the recipient of the ASCE Student Chapter Contribution Award for the 2007-2008 school-year. Britney Singh was the winner of the ASCE Senior of the Year Award. For spring fundraising, the chapter co-sponsored/organized the 2008 Spring Engineering Festival with ITE and BREN Club. The annual event was a large success, with all the proceeds from the festival going 8

The student chapter is as always very appreciative of the continuous support from the Montana (Professional) Section of ASCE.

The club has monthly meetings with different guest speakers that provide a presentation over dinner. The club performs a public service twice annual clean-up of the Sheep Mountain Fishing Access Site as part of the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks adopt a fishing site program. The BREN club attended the 2007 meeting of the Center for Riverine Science and Stream Re-naturalization in Missoula, Montana. This adventure was a great way for students to witness real-world engineering problems and breakthroughs, outside of a scholastic situation. BREN Club students also maintain the stream gauging equipment on Mandeville Creek, and participate in the Spring Engineering Festival. If you are interested in joining or presenting, please contact Joel Cahoon at joelc@ce.montana.edu. BREN 2007-08 Officers Faculty Advisors: Joel Cahoon and Otto Stein President: Jessica Potter Vice President: Aaron Johnson Chi Epsilon 2007-08 The Montana State University Chapter of Chi Epsilon has been active in student support this past year. We provide several programs many engineering students find helpful; the prominent programs being Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE) review sessions and a weekly tutoring program. The FE Review sessions have been our most successful program. Our chapter examined the FE exam specifications and determined nine general topic areas and five civil specific areas that could be reviewed. Our chapter then contacted various professors within the College of Engineering at Montana State University. These Professors then donated their time to develop and present a review lecture for students planning to take the FE to help them become familiar with the exam topic areas.

As detailed in the 2007-2008 MSU-ITE Student Chapter Annual Report, this year’s Officers delivered another full and well-balanced program of promotion, technical presentations, technical projects, field trips, public service and social activities that built upon the successes achieved by MSU-ITE in previous years. This year, the MSU-ITE Student Chapter successfully maintained their active involvement in technical projects. In September 2007, the chapter helped the Western Transportation Institute with traffic data collection during the football game event. Data was collected in Bozeman, Montana on two consecutive Saturdays to analyze the effects of football game traffic. Three types of data was collected: travel times for three specific routes in Bozeman, turning movement counts at key intersections, and a questionnaire survey that targeted football game attendees. In October 2007, the Chapter helped Engineering Inc., a local engineering firm, in collecting turning movement counts at residential neighborhoods in Belgrade, Montana. These two data collection activities also helped the chapter to raise some funds. Further, the MSU ITE Chapter organized several technical presentations on campus through inviting guest speakers from the transportation profession from Montana and other states. On-site Technical Presentations: September 07 Engineering Inc., Kirk Spalding, operations & safety of roundabouts October 07 Kimley Horn Associates & Atkinson Construction - Road design and construction October 07 DKS Associates, Brandy Sulars, the South Corridor Project November 07 Kittelson & Associates, Del Huntington & Marc Butorac, the difference between the public and private sectors for transportation professionals.

  34. 34. c. Senior Exit Interviews 2007-2008 Senior Exit Interview Summary Senior exit interviews occurred on two occasions during the year. Civil Engineering students in the CE458 capstone course were interviewed in December of 2007 and May of 2008. The interviews were conducted by the department head and emphasized the total four year experience. During the interview, students were first asked to introduce themselves, and then tell where they were from and where they were going after graduation. A summary of where the graduating students were going is included the table below. Senior Exit Interview Placement Information Semester Work - Work - Work- Offers – Actively Not Graduate Consulting Contractor Other None Looking Actively School Engineers Accepted No Looking Offer Fall 07 9 3 1 3 4 5 (25) Spring 06 20 5 1 6 3 (35) Total 29 3 6 1 9 4 8 (60) Next, students were asked to provide input regarding their experiences at MSU in two ways. First, they were asked to provide comments regarding program strengths/commendations. Next they were asked to provide comments regarding program weaknesses/recommendations. The following bullet list summarizes these comments. Strengths/Commendations • Structure Lab • Engineering mechanics courses • Well prepared for FE exam • Hydraulics classes • Faculty (4) • Academic advising (3) • Tait lab, when available Weaknesses/Recommendations • Availability of professional electives • CE 308 (18) – too much duplication with senior design – return work promptly
  35. 35. • CE 457 – too many things vague or contrived (12) • Senior designs course too much work for 2 credit class (6) • BUS 201 • ME 115-116 – CAD preparation (16) • Expanded Tait computer lab hours • Heavy Construction/Senior Design schedule conflict • Lack of Organic chemistry in BREN • LRES 444 – too much overlap with BREN classes • Heavy end-of-semester work loads • Formally scheduling evening exams • Lose the tough attitude – confidence killing environment – promote success not failure • Don’t like no textbook classes • Some faculty too interested in research • Lab component in BREN classes is needed • I&ME 325, estimating and scheduling topics could be in one course (4) • Some academic advisors are poor (3) • ENGR 310 – a waste of time
  36. 36. Faculty Activity Survey The Department’s annual faculty review information; the COE’s annual report information; and the campus Delaware study information are collected through the Faculty Activity Survey (FAS). Individual faculty reviews have been archived in the Department Head’s annual review folder. The FAS contain information about each faculty member’s activities including: • Activities related to Teaching • Activities related to Scholarship • Activities related to Service • Awards • Outreach • Other Information
