ASCE has honored Catherine M. Martsolf, EIT, LEED AP BD+C, A.M.ASCE, with the 2021 Daniel W. Mead Prize for Younger Members for the paper “COVID-19: Redesigning Our Built Environment.”
Canon 6 of the ASCE Code of Ethics states, “Engineers shall act in such a manner as to uphold and enhance the honor, integrity, and dignity of the engineering profession and shall act with zero tolerance for bribery, fraud, and corruption.” Recently, the media has exposed examples of “pay-to-play” scandals over a broad range of organizations from college admissions to engineering and construction firms. How does this affect the civil engineering profession?
Martsolf is an environmental engineer with Temple University College of Engineering, in Greater Philadelphia.
The Daniel W. Mead Prize for Younger Members is awarded to the author or authors of a paper on professional ethics. Each year the specific topics, if any, of the contest for the forthcoming year will be selected by the Committee on Younger Members.
