CEE Student Peter Esh Awarded J. Thomas Miles Memorial Scholarship

Esh presented scholarship by civil and environmental engineering group

Peter Esh, a senior civil and environmental engineering student, has been awarded the $2,000 J. Thomas Miles Memorial Scholarship, and was honored at the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Affiliates Winter Quarterly Meeting.  Esh currently works at Fluor, an engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance services company in Irvine, where he works with other engineers developing computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, assisting with piping and instrumentation diagrams and other functions in Fluor’s Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle power plant and Marathon project groups. 

Created in 2005, the J. Thomas Miles Memorial Scholarship is a joint award sponsored by the CEE Affiliates and the Society of American Military Engineers, and is awarded based on academic achievement, work experience, and involvement in extra-curricular activities. Each scholarship applicant submitted a short essay, which reflected qualities that were important to Miles – a deep commitment to family, participation in the local and engineering communities, and leadership within the CEE Affiliates group.

The CEE Affiliates strongly supports CEE students and department programs, and serves as an interface between the professional civil and environmental engineering community in Southern California and UC Irvine.
