Chester P. Siess Award
In 1978, when Professor Siess retired, his students established the Chester P. Siess Award to recognize his contributions to civil engineering education, research, and practice. The award is presented to an outstanding graduate student in civil engineering to enable the student to attend a professional society conference. A faculty committee makes the selection on the basis of scholastic achievement, and interest and promise in research.
The award is given during the Spring semester.
