    Episode 87 - How strong is your understanding of UHPC?

    Episode 87 - How strong is your understanding of UHPC?

    This weeks episode is about one of the most unique materials we have had in a while. Now you may say this is concrete, which we've been pretty good at since 1300 BC, and while that isnt incorrect, we say its so much more than stone, clay, and limestone from 3300 years ago, this is Ultra High Performance! So sit back and let us ask the dumb questions while we learn about UHPC, the many advantrages, and where we might see it in the future.Fun Links:FHA Introduction to UHPCPCI PresentationReach out to us:InstagramLinkedInEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.com

    Episode 86 - Succesfully Engineering A Career

    Episode 86 - Succesfully Engineering A Career

    We are lucky enough to have one more episode with Scott Johnson this week. Scott was our primary host at Louisiana Pacific and works in the construction services sector. We had a short conversation with Scott about his career path and quickly decided we wanted to hear more. From the Marines to teaching Masonry design and finally wood elements, It seems Scott has seen it all, so join in, and I have a feeling you'll take some good lessons away from this conversation. Check out Louisiana Pacific products here: https://lpcorp.com/Reach out to us:InstagramLinkedInEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.com

    Episode 82 - Financial Engineering

    This week is unique for us, as it's not a direct structural engineering resource but it's a topic that I am certain you need to understand while you plan out your career. Zach and I are talking with Ryan Sullivan, an engineer who left his design job to go after a passion in financial planning. This is a great story for all the engineers with a pocket full of "numbers" questions, and we finally have the right person to ask. So join in while we learn how we should think about this critical, and engineering adjacent, decision framework for your work life. Ryan Website can be found here: https://www.obpfinancial.com/And I also wanted to link in Connor's (Episode 77) new Python course, I'll certainly be joining in since I see this as a beneficial future set of skills for our profession, Check it out here:https://www.structuralpython.com/

Thanks

I’m currently in my senior year of undergrad, just started a structural engineering internship and seeing all the work people are doing has been very overwhelming. Listening to this podcast has really helped me stay positive and realize that I don’t have to know everything. There’s some really great information in these episodes.
