Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) Research Engineer Charles Stevens has been named the 2015 Young Engineer of the Year by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). Stevens accepted the award during the organization’s annual meeting in Seattle, Washington on July 17.
According to NSPE, “the Young Engineer of the Year Award recognizes young members who have made outstanding contributions to the engineering profession and their communities during the early years of their careers.”
Stevens qualified to apply for the national award after receiving similar awards at the chapter and state level of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers.
Stevens received civil engineering degrees from Texas A&M University and began his career as a student worker at TTI. After seven years in private practice as a consultant, Stevens returned to TTI in March 2014.
“I was excited to win the award at the state level but am still in a state of disbelief to have received the national honor,” Stevens said. “It is an honor to know that your application went up against those of the best young engineers across the country and you came out on top.”
