Soltesz Engineer, Dana Chiao, Guest Lecture at Winston Churchill High School’s Engineering Honor Society

Dan Chiao Guest Lecture at Winston Churchill High School’s Engineering Honor Society

Throughout the school year, the Winston Churchill High School’s Engineering Honor Society holds lectures from experienced industry professionals to expose students to various types of engineering and provide greater insight into what it’s truly like to be an engineer.

This month Civil Engineer Dana Chiao of our Rockville, MD office virtually presented to the current junior and senior Honor Society members. She shared her journey from her undergraduate years at the University of Maryland, College Park to her current role at Soltesz, where she has worked as an engineer since graduating in 2015.

Of the 120 members that make up the Honor Society, the 11th and 12th grade students have a wide variety of interest that include mechanical, computer, electrical, chemical, biomedical, and of course civil engineering. Dana was able to provide a review of the different disciplines within civil engineering and what the typical project process entails.

Dana wrapped up her educational presentation by highlighted a few local projects she has worked on including the Washingtonian Rio Center in Gaithersburg, the Glenstone Museum in Potomac, and the Washington Monument Visitor Center in Washington, DC.

Soltesz considers education to be a top priority not only for students, but for our employees as well. For inquiries and to learn more about having a member of our team present for your group, please contact Marketing Director Lindsey Russell at
