Alumnus wins global Young Engineering Laureate award

October 22, 2018

Geoffrey MorganGeoffrey Morgan, who received his bachelor’s in international studies and civil engineering in 2011, was recently named a Young Engineering Laureate by the World Federation of Engineering Organisations for leadership in progressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals through engineering.

“Being a student in the Jackson School program provided me with a more holistic worldview which allows me, in my current position as an engineer at the UN, to think more broadly of the impact that infrastructure has on the people that it is intended to serve,” Morgan wrote to us when we learned of his award. “This makes the infrastructure that I work on more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive which helps countries achieve their development aspirations as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.”

Due to being named a Young Engineering Laureate, he will be attending the Global Engineering Congress in London in late October and giving a presentation of his work at UNOPS, where he serves as Infrastructure Sustainability and Resilience Specialist.
