On Thursday, April 3rd, 2014, young professionals of UrbanTech Consulting Engineering, P.C. presented two bridge lectures. The lectures were presented in the offices of Parsons Brinkerhoff.  Tommy Huang, P.E. and Adam Goosen, P.E. spoke about the Rehabilitation of the Atlantic Avenue Viaduct for MTA LIRR, and the Temporary Work for Replacement of the Queens Approach to the Whitestone Bridge, respectively. Thirty civil engineer young professionals attended the lecture in addition to an executive of UrbanTech.

The audience filled out evaluation forms. The presenters immediately received feedback on how their lecture was perceived by the audience. After the presentations, attendees gathered for a networking event  and happy hour at Blarney's Rock Pub.

The YMF's Technical Lectures Committee would like to diversify the subject matter in presentations to include areas of civil engineering such as geotechnical, water resources, construction, environmental, and transportation. Sharing your project experiences is a great benefit to YMF members and an opportunity to improve presentation skills. If you are interested in presenting, please send an email with a proposed topic to the YMF Technical Chair, Jessica Wang, at .
