Devyn Howe '20
Devyn Howe, a civil engineering major, found the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture (CETA) to be the main source of support during her four years as a student at UHart. Hired before graduation, Devyn’s opportunity came about as a result of her hard work in the classroom and the support of CETA’s faculty.
“My favorite thing about UHart was the civil engineering program,” says Devyn. “The professors go above and beyond to prepare you for the real world, and help you in every way they can when schoolwork gets tough.” Applied assistant professor Todd Brown helped Howe through her later years of college, giving her multiple opportunities to show off her knowledge outside the classroom. More specifically she says, “he led me to teach high school students about environmental engineering, sparking their interest in the field.”
Along with being focused on her academics, Howe was involved on campus. Specifically, she was on the women’s golf team for her first three years.
Her advice to new students? “Work hard in the classroom, because it does pay off once you’re done. If you put your mind to your schoolwork, opportunities will present themselves that set you apart from the rest,” she says. Soon, Howe will begin her full-time position as a Transportation Engineer for the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT).
“UHart’s excellent civil engineering program gave me the knowledge and teamwork skills I needed to succeed in my career post-graduation,” says Howe.
