Lucas Djehdian was honored as a recipient of the Chester P. Siess Award at the Civil and Environmental Engineering Awards Convocation on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
The Chester P. Siess Award was established by students of Professor Siess upon his retirement in 1978, to recognize his contributions to civil engineering education, research, and practice. The award is presented to outstanding graduate students in civil engineering to enable them to attend a professional society conference. A faculty committee makes the selection on the basis of scholastic achievement, as well as interest in and promise in research.
Lucas will use the Siess Award for travel to the 2018 EWRI World Environmental and Water Resources Congress in Minneapolis, MN, where he will present “Water Resource Stress of U.S. Cities: A Food-Energy-Water Nexus Study,” based on his M.S. thesis.
