Tuesday, 02 April 2024

Civil engineering student Jackie Zong has been selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) as one of the 2024 New Faces of Civil Engineering in the Collegiate category.

Only 10 students are chosen each year for the the New Faces of Civil Engineering program, which highlights the academic and professional achievements of up-and-coming civil engineering students. This is the fourth year in a row in which a Georgia Tech student has been selected.

Zong has been an active member of the ASCE student chapter at Georgia Tech since his first year and currently serves as the vice president of external relations. Now a third-year, he leads the Solar Decathlon team at Georgia Tech, designing and building the first net-zero energy home in Westside Atlanta.

In addition to his academic and extracurricular involvement, Zong serves on the advisory board of the Lifecycle Building Center, a non-profit organization that collects usable construction materials destined for landfills and repurposes them for community reuse. He has also played a key role in establishing a workforce training program aimed at improving construction and reconstruction practices.
