In recognition of National Engineers Week (EWeek) February 20-28, CMA will be highlighting some of our women engineers throughout the week!
Sathvika Ramaji, E.I. is an associate engineer in our Miami office with five years of experience. Sathvika graduated from University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering and a master’s degree in civil engineering. We asked Sathvika to share some information about why she became an engineer.
Why I chose civil engineering: I chose to become an engineer because I have always wanted to be a problem solver. I enjoy coming up with unique solutions for each project. To me, civil engineering is an essential part of civilization, and I am glad to be able to contribute to society through engineering. Initially, I studied environmental engineering because I liked chemistry in high school, but became very involved with the student chapter of ASCE starting in my sophomore year at the U. Through ASCE, I learned about CMA and met some local CMAers. I pursued an internship at CMA and started on my path to becoming a civil engineer.
Fun fact: I studied abroad in Italy and earned a master’s degree in environmental engineering from the University of Bologna, one of the oldest universities in the world. I have also visited 27 countries. https://www.nspe.org/
