Boulos, its Chief Executive Officer, has been invited to give the Distinguished Speaker Series at the University of Dayton on April 4, 2019. His talk is titled, “Lessons on Engineering Leadership.” Boulos will also have lunch with faculty and staff and meet with members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) local chapter.
The University of Dayton Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering Mechanics Distinguished Speaker Series is aimed at exploring the connection between civil engineering and the impact the project’s engineers’ work has on society. The series includes three unrelated presentations during each of the Fall and Winter semesters. Enrolled sophomore, junior, and senior civil engineering students are required to attend. The Department invites local professionals to attend the presentations and interact with students at the conclusion of the presentations. Events of the Distinguished Speaker Series take place at the H. Troy and Eileen Sears Recital Hall in the Jesse Philips Humanities Center at the University of Dayton.
Donald V. Chase, Ph.D., P.E., Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Dayton said, “I have known Dr. Boulos personally and professionally for nearly 35 years. Since his days at the University of Kentucky, Paul has been an innovator and leader in all manner of water resources engineering. From his graduate work in hydraulic transients to his leadership of Innoyze and now Digital Water Works, Dr. Boulos has sought to learn, lead and serve – the very mission of the University of Dayton and the qualities that we seek to instill in our students.”
