The College Outreach Community leads collaborative efforts between SAME and academia to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges and supports Post’s efforts to mentor and develop future STEM professionals at the collegiate-level. The community serves as a bridge between academia, Posts, government (military and civilian), and the private sector. The community provides guidance to the network of student chapters across the Society, promotes internship opportunities from SAME sustaining members, and will establish a new engineering competition for students designed to address the nation’s grand challenges.
The SAME College Outreach Community strives to organize programs and present opportunities to future military and civilian members of the A/E/C profession that will foster networking within their professional community, build leadership skills, and provide job opportunities to recent graduates. Additionally, students with an active membership within SAME have at their disposal a wealth of knowledge and experiences from professionals throughout the A/E/C community of practice.

Bio-Electro-Chemical Technologies for Sustainable Remediation of Contaminants, and Micron-Scale Carbon Injections Used to Remediate Residual HydrocarbonsThis presentation will introduce a novel bio-electro-chemical (BEC) technique that can address the challenge of effective and sustainable cleanup of contaminants in tight geological formations such as clay and silts. BEC leverages the interactions of microbes and electron transfer, and the electrochemical reactions in such processes, to achieve degradation of a variety of contaminants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, and PFAS.

Fate, Transport, and In Situ Treatment of PFASPFAS, a group of thousands of human-made chemicals with adverse health impacts, have been detected in water supplies across the U.S. With its widespread impact to drinking water and the near certainty that select PFAS will be classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as hazardous waste, an understanding its properties and viable treatment options are needed. This presentation provides an overview of the fate and transport properties of different PFAS as well as design elements for an in situ permeable sorptive barrier treatment system in shallow groundwater at a metal finishing facility, where a PFAS-based mist suppressant to mitigate hexavalent chromium vapors had impacted groundwater.

Engineering With Nature and the U.S. Army Corps of EngineersThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineering With Nature (EWN) initiative enables more sustainable delivery of economic, social, and environmental benefits associated with infrastructure. Triple-win outcomes are achieved throughout EWN by systematically integrating social, environmental, and economic considerations at every phase of a project. The results are innovative and resilient solutions that are more socially acceptable, viable, equitable, and, ultimately, more sustainable. In this webinar, hear from two of the program’s leading experts to learn more about the exciting future of EWN.
