Hi everyone! My name is Ted Bolte and I am a first year masters student in Structural Engineering. I completed my undergrad last May at Villanova University, where I majored in Civil Engineering and received a minor in Business. The last three summers, I have interned with Gannett Fleming in their bridge/roadway design group. This introduced me to a lot of different software that is commonly used in structural engineering, while also emphasizing the importance of understanding how to use and implement these softwares in industry. I am excited to take this course and learn more about different types of engineering software that I have not previously used.
