COPRI Student Sponsorship of Ports ‘19
ASCE COPRI - North Jersey Chapter sponsored four students, from the Stevens Institute of Technology, to attend the Ports ’19 Conference (9/15-9/19) in Pittsburgh, PA. The conference provided a great opportunity to expand their technical skills, and network with industry professionals. The conference provided the opportunity to reconnect with Stevens alumni, Jeremy Pope (MSI), and Omar Lopez (Taylor Engineering). The connections made, and maintained at the conference, will facilitate additional collaborations between the student chapter and professionals.
