Structural Integrity’s Critical Infrastructure Group Mentoring Students from the University of California, San Diego

Structural Integrity – led by our own Derrick Watkins and John Svet – is mentoring students from the University of California, San Diego during their senior design Capstone project. The goal of the mentorship is to give the students real-life working experience through participation in a design project with industry mentors. The students are learning how to develop forces on equipment during earthquakes and how to design anchorage so that the equipment remains in place and functional during and following an earthquake. At the end of the project, the students will write a report and make a presentation to their Professor, their classmates and other industry mentors.
