Curtney Walters, a civil engineer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and a 2024 Modern-Day Technology Leader Award winner, is part of a team that revitalized a collaboration established in 2003 between the USACE and the Alabama A&M University’s Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering.

The collaboration aims to promote diversity and enhance opportunities for AAMU civil and mechanical engineering students.

According to AAMU, civil engineering alumni at the Huntsville Center played a key role in renewing the partnership, which greatly benefits engineering students. Justin Colar (left) graduated in 2012 and Walters in 2005.

Dr. Mohamed Ashour, professor and coordinator of the civil engineering program in the AAMU Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, stated that the partnership renewal means that AAMU students can now secure internships through the local USACE office.

Ashour emphasized the numerous benefits that the renewed partnership will bring to AAMU students, including updated information about entry-level positions and increased opportunities for training and careers with USACE after graduation.

The renewed agreement includes offering internship and employment opportunities and involves the Huntsville Center providing visiting lecturers and advisers for senior and graduate design projects and practical, industry-relevant insights.
