Anthony G. DiGiantommaso, RI B 2016, was recognized by the University of Rhode Island civil & environmental engineering (CVE) department for receiving both a Deep Foundations Institute Educational Trust scholarship and for being a 2015 Tau Beta Pi Scholar. According to the news release, DiGiantommaso is a senior civil engineering major, ranked as on of the top students in the College of Engineering, and serves as vice president of the local Chi Epsilon Chapter.
His interests are in geotechnical and structural engineering and he eventually wants to combine both fields in the design of waterfront structures. About receiving the scholarships, Anthony says “these scholarship mean a lot to me because they acknowledge the hard work I have put in while at URI, but also enable me to continue learning and pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering.” The URI CVE website also displays an awesome image of three TBP/URI graduates wearing their Tau Beta Pi stoles and hard hats.
