Title: Scholarship program to benefit future engineers

Abstract

ASDSO this year launched a new scholarship program for undergraduate students interested in dam safety engineering as a career. Two scholarships of $2,500 each will be granted to one junior and one senior, beginning with the 1993 school year. Students taking a full college course load and majoring in civil or agricultural engineering, geology, or a related field, were elgible. ASDSO, which plans to name the recipients by May 1993, received about two dozen applications for the scholarships.

  • This article provides information on the challenges of redirecting decades of U.S. military spending policies toward regaining economic greatness in the world. New reports conclude that the coming cutbacks may hit engineers especially hard. Roughly 37 percent of the nation's 342,000 defense engineering positions may evaporate within the next four years. Inevitably, [open quotes]politics[close quotes] will play a confusing role in any transition program undertaken, and success will only result if all of the involved parties are willing to compromise. 20 refs., 1 fig.
  • Old rigs are being modified piecemeal with various technological improvements to increase drilling performance. On the horizon are the completely automated drilling rigs that are promising safety and efficiency to rig floor operations. In this article, the benefits of the technology to automate a complete rig and the modules needed to modify existing rigs are analyzed.
  • The Northeast States Coordinated for Air Use Management (NESCAUM) is an organization formed by the governors of eight northeastern states to encourage regional approaches to the area`s air quality problems. Fuel Refomulation Publisher Fred Potter and reporter Jack Belcher recently discussed clean air issues in the Northeast with NESCAUM Executive Director Jason Grumet.
  • The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) has been acclaimed as a Congressional mandate requiring all Federal agencies, whatever their traditional missions and responsibilities, to give increased consideration to the impacts of their actions upon the human environment. It is instructive to compare the initial responses to this law of Federal agencies engaged in similar activities. Such comparison provides insight into behavior patterns of agencies, and into the effectiveness of new legislative mandates in bringing about changes in administrative behavior. This study compares two water resource development programs, the Civil Works Program of the Army Corps of Engineers andmore » the Small Watersheds Program of the Soil Conservation Service (SCS). It appears that NEPA did force action by the Federal water resource agencies, but that it did so in different ways and with varying degrees of effectiveness. Both organizational characteristics and political pressures were of major significance in determining the magnitude, speed, and character of the agencies' responses. (MCW)« less
