Famous Civil Engineers

Nora Stanton Barney – First lady member of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

Nora Stanton was born in Basingstoke, England, on September 30, 1883. Her family relocated to New York when she was a child. Nora Stanton Barney was the first woman to receive a Civil Engineering degree from Cornell University in 1905. In the same year, she was elected as the first female junior member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). She showed the world what women empowerment looked like in the era where men were given preference in everything, especially in the engineering field. Nora Stanton Blatch paved the way for women in many areas, not only engineering. What we initially saw as a setback has now become an opportunity to learn and grow. Many other female figures have been inspired by her determination and can-do attitude to follow their dreams.

Fare we’ll from my IIT, Roorkee Laboratory

Fare we’ll from my IIT, Roorkee Laboratory.
Whole civil engineering department was talking
A young boy is coming to hold my hand
I still remember it was raining
When Dr. Jai Krishna give my hand in your hands
My whole body thrilled while my hand was in your hands
I feel myself lucky and glad
A very handsome boy is going to be mine
God only knows for how much time
I was poor and totally nacked
You decorate and made me richest
I could not sleep whole night
As tomorrow you are going to leave me
I hear the sound of clappings
For your Praise from the head of IIT
but my heart was weeping
As soon I will not see you again
The. You come look at me
Look at the mechines you had installed
At a last look at me
You left me for ever
Believe me my love
You will always be in my heart
I will always be only yours
I will pray for your peaceful long and healthy life
God bless you.
– Kaushal Kishore
