Ashraf Habibullah, CSI
Where can your CEE degree take you? Hear from alumnus Ashraf Habibullah as he reflects on pivotal moments in his career and best practices for new graduates!
Ashraf is a structural engineer and President/CEO of Computers & Structures, Inc. (CSI). Today, CSI is recognized globally as the pioneering leader in the development of software tools for structural and earthquake engineering. The skyline of every major modern city in the world is defined by structures that have been designed using CSI software. Ashraf also has a keen passion for the arts and social causes. He is co-founder of the critically acclaimed Diablo Ballet and the founder of the Engineer's Alliance for the Arts, an organization that involves school children with technology, focusing on the artistic aspects of bridge engineering.
In this talk, Ashraf emphasizes the need for a human engineering based education. He convincingly demonstrates, with his usual enthusiasm and humor, why it is important to cultivate deep personal beliefs, to develop communication skills and to become familiar with the arts, human psychology and human chemistry. These talents will enable young graduates to enter the professional world ready to lead, influence and inspire!
