Today, November 11, 2021, we hosted the Denison Youth Leadership Academy at our office!
We began with a tour of, spoke about our work, showed a set of civil engineering plans from a project in Denison and described the education requirements to be an engineer. Finally, we challenged the students to design and construct a tower in 45 minutes.
Each group received $5.00, a tablet of paper for their design schematic and a list of supplies with prices. With 15 minutes left, a surprise challenge was announced! The tower had to withstand a hurricane (fan)!
Thank you, Josh Massey, for asking us to participate in the construction day for the academy. We had fun hosting the students!
We’re celebrating Barbara J. Vilbig, PE, David A. Vilbig, PE, Jennifer Vilbig Lawson, PE and Tommy Vilbig, PE as licensed professional engineers! Today, August 4th, 2021 is the 6th annual Professional Engineers Day. We’re also celebrating Matthew Fusselman, EIT as a licensed engineer in training!
About Professional Engineers Day
“On August 8, 1907, the first professional engineering license was issued to Charles Bellamy in Wyoming. Since that time, licensure has expanded and professional engineers across the U.S. have made the commitment to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. NSPE is celebrating licensed professional engineers with the sixth annual Professional Engineers Day on Wednesday, August 4, 2021. Join us as we raise awareness about what it means to be a PE, recognize licensed PEs, and show appreciation for the work they do each and every day.”
Last week, Jennifer Vilbig Lawson, PE and Tommy Vilbig, PE, attended the TSPE Conference & 85th Annual Meeting at the Star in Frisco, Texas. The conference was a great opportunity for networking with other professional engineers while earning professional development hours.
Vilbig & Associates, PLLC sponsored the conference and is proud to support our profession.
As a bonus, dinner one night was held at the Dallas Cowboys Training Table and included a tour of the Star aka the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters. Pictures from the tour are below.
The Texas Society of Professional Engineers, one of the largest state societies in the United States, was founded in 1936 to serve the interests of the individual engineer in Texas across all branches of engineering. Composed of 24 local chapters and eight student chapters, TSPE is the only active, established organization devoting its entire effort to the professional, ethical, economic, social and political aspects of engineering in Texas.
Our mission is to promote and enhance the profession and licensed practice of engineering.
