From Classroom to Conemaugh: Pittsburgh Students Dive into Dam Engineering
In a convergence of academia and real-world engineering, a group of students from the University of Pittsburgh’s Hydrologic Analysis and Design course explored the Conemaugh River Dam to expand their engineer learning beyond conventional classroom boundaries. April Richards, a park ranger with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District, describes the survey process for the whole river basin before selecting the spot where Conemaugh Dam was constructed during a tour of the dam to University of Pittsburgh students in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, Oct. 13, 2023.
