Dr. Rebecca McDaniel will present the civil, architectural and engineering department’s Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) Distinguished Lecture at 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, in Room 125 Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall.
McDaniel is the technical director of the North Central Superpave Center at Purdue University, a position she has held since 1995. In this presentation, she will draw on her personal experiences to share ways to build a satisfying, rewarding career in civil engineering. While McDaniel’s career has focused mainly on asphalt materials and pavements, the lessons she has learned are applicable to engineering in general. McDaniel will offer examples that demonstrate how sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone can lead to life-long relationships and opportunities to advance.
