The American Society of Civil Engineers has announced its 2021 class of the New Faces of Civil Engineering–College Edition, honoring 10 of the best and the brightest students from campuses around the world. Included in this list of future industry leaders is Georgia Tech civil engineering student Peter Psaltakis: 


Psaltakis is taking his place in the family lineage, following both his grandfather and father into the civil engineering profession.

Taking full advantage of the opportunities afforded him at Georgia Tech, Psaltakis has been very involved in a variety of activities, including steel bridge, intramural soccer, and the Chi Epsilon civil engineering honors society.

He also has been active in the ASCE student chapter, serving as president this year, with previous roles including student conference chair, secretary, and ASCE student ambassador.

“What I’m most looking forward to is the impact the projects I work on will have on my community,” Psaltakis said. “Inherently, as the name of the occupation suggests, civil engineers work toward making society a better place to live. While an engineer’s effect on a community is generally limited by a project’s scope, I plan to always put my best work forward and strive to make the world we share a better place.”
