Haestad Methods Awards Engineering Scholarships To Top Applicants in the Water Resources Field 7.28.04

Haestad Methods Scholarship Committee announced that Stephen Shaw of Cornell University and Jairo Amarillo of Lafayette College have been awarded engineering scholarships sponsored by Haestad Methods. This program was established by the company to provide financial support to full-time civil engineering students with an interest in hydraulic engineering.

For over a year, Haestad Methods has awarded scholarships to students based upon their academic achievement and research projects using the company's water resources modeling software programs. Qualified applicants are supplied with all the software and technical support required to complete their projects.

Shaw, a graduate student of Cornell University, submitted a project on the suitability of synthetic hyetographs for detention basin design in small watersheds. His project assessed the sensitivity of calculated outflow hydrographs for small watersheds to assumed synthetic hydrographs. He generated and compared outflow for two actual watersheds and several hypothetical watersheds of varying area and time of concentration using Haestad Methods' PondPack detention pond and watershed modeling software.

Amarillo, an undergraduate student and Trustee Scholar of Lafayette College, submitted a case study that analyzed potential CAD and GIS interoperability solutions for the water utility industry. The evaluation demonstrated the benefits of automated cross-application data flow processes using Haestad Methods' WaterGEMS and GISConnect software for a Southwestern Arizona-based utility.

Other academic programs sponsored by the company include Haestad Methods' Educational Software Grant and Library Donation programs for qualified colleges, universities, and technical institutes; and UTalk, the company's innovative online discussion group created specifically for university faculty, researchers, and students.
