Ali Catik, president, Civil East Operations, Tutor Perini Corp, NY, and a 1976 Michigan Tech graduate.
He presented the Civil Engineering Graduate Seminar entitled: “Civil and Environmental Engineering Mega Projects in Big Cities”
Civil and environmental engineers are educated to design, build, and maintain mankind’s infrastructure. This is most apparent in big cities and metropolitan areas where mega projects are required. Examples of these projects include: transportation systems consisting of roads, bridges, tunnels, and toll roads; mass transportation systems consisting of airports, harbors, subways and railroads; clean water systems consisting of water treatment, waste water treatment, and solid waste disposal; energy systems consisting of power plants and transmission grids; and buildings consisting of schools, hospitals, and high rise office and housing complexes. With the population demographics shifting upward in the big cities and metro areas, the future demand for mega projects will increase along with the demand for innovative thinking and hard working engineers. Three New York City mega projects will be presented including: construction of the $850 million Newtown-waste water treatment plant, the $1.32 billion Croton water filtration plant, and the $1.2 billion East Side Access-mass transit tunnel. Michigan Tech engineers have the knowledge and skills to carry out these types of projects.
