She co-hosts an amazing podcast called the L&S District where she helps international students in their journey to becoming an engineer. Her story is amazing and it was great connecting with her and talk about a lot of relatable challenges international students face when coming to the US. I hope you enjoy this episode even if you are not an international student, there is a lot of great information Lilian shares that applies to everyone.

I had no idea this was an option for a career in civil engineering. Mike gives us a high level overview about what he does as a bridge inspector. We discuss the different challenges this type of inspection have such as visibility, additional certifications, and much more. He also shared some non-traditional career opportunities that students can pursue after graduation. In this episode you will learn 03:30 How underwater structures are inspected and maintained. 07:26 Finding a career that is outside of the traditional civil engineering fields. 12:00 What technologies are used to inspect underwater structures. 20:23 Inspection of bridges using drones research I conduced for my masters degree. 22:42 How important diving is to become a underwater inspector. 24:58 Certifications an underwater inspector needs to have. 29:00 Some of the most notable bridges that Mike has inspected. 32:18 Last thoughts on underwater inspection and lessons learned Music by Jack Winders Intro: Midwest Folks Outro: Southern Skies Website: https://www.jackwinders.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JackWindersMusic Follow him on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0msfukZWdVoUHIvpFvanTU?si=U5jKEdjfSTOetL12ispLcg Connect with me Sign up to my weekly email newsletter // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Newsletter My website & blog // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com Instagram // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Instagram Twitter // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Twitter LinkedIn // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/LinkedIn Facebook // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Facebook YouTube // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/YouTube --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/engourfuture/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/engourfuture/support

This episode with Catherine was really interesting because she is one of the founders of HeForSWE, an organization that empowers women through male involvement. She is a true example of someone that is passionate about diversity and inclusion through all the committees she is involved in as well as the experiences she has lived through. It was a pleasure talking to her and getting to know her mission and passion for a more diverse profession.

In this episode, I sit with Avery Bang and Devin Connell from Bridges to Prosperity to learn how they are connecting millions of people by building pedestrian bridges in some of the most remote areas of Africa and South America. Avery and Devin are doing some amazing work with these communities with Bridges to Prosperity, and they shared interesting stories on how they are building all of these bridges. Some fascinating facts from our conversation include the use of manual labor to build the bridges (as opposed to using big equipment like we normally use in the US), the procurement of material and how they recycle steel cables for their bridges, and the impact a single bridge has on these communities. In this episode you will learn What Bridges to Prosperity is as well as their core mission. Some of the challenges communities and engineers overcome when building in developing countries. How bridges are built without big equipment. How pedestrian bridges are connecting communities in Rwanda. How corporate partners are the backbone of the mission of Bridges to Prosperity. How Bridges to Prosperity adjusted to continue helping these communities through the Covid-19 pandemic and all the challenges they faced. Why it is important for young engineers to get involved with professional organizations. What has been the largest suspension bridge Bridges to Prosperity has built. How Avery and Devin think we can continue Engineering our Future.

Full show notes at: https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/027 It is always a pleasure to be invited to speak at conferences and big events but speaking to smaller groups of students is a lot of times more fulfilling. Last week, I was invited to speak to the Metro State University ASCE student chapter in Denver. I have been a practitioner advisor for them for a little while now as they navigate becoming an active chapter again. In this talk, the students wanted to know what are some skills and practices they need to know once they graduate. I shared with them how I struggled to find my first structural engineering job, lessons from all of the non-structural engineering jobs, and some of the lessons I have learned early on in my career.

As a Latino in STEM, I struggle to see the facts and lean on these thought of not being enough. With Diversity and Inclusion being so important nowadays, it is hard for me not to think I got an awards, accepted into a committee, selected to talk at a conference, etc... because of my background. Jeff has some thoughts on how we can combat impostor syndrome and look at the facts to overcome these thoughts.

I have been reading more and more to learn better ways I can develop new routines. One book that really helped me is Atomic Habits by James Clear. I have found that there are three principles that can really help develop and maintain those routines. In this episode I talk about small habits, habit stacking, and the two day rule by Matt D'Avella. I am by no means an expert, but I have spend many hours learning and practicing ways to be more effective at developing these routines.
