TRACK 1
1-A Engineering Ethics
(2 PDHs)
Presenter: Tom Leslie, PE,
In a narrow sense, ethical engineering in Georgia simply means adhering to the requirements of state
law and rule related to practice as a registered Professional Engineer. So exactly what does the law
and Board rule require of Georgia PEs? This session will take a brisk walk through the obligations and
responsibilities of practicing engineering - and the liabilities if you do not do so ethically. If you have not
read relevant state law and rule recently (or ever), this is a session you will want to attend.
1-B Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP) Dissolved Oxygen Mitigation
Presenter: AMEC
(1 PDH)
1-C BIM – Predict, Simulate & Analyze…Autodesk InfraWorks and Transportation Planning for
Civil Engineers
(1 PDH)
Presenter: Ken Driscol
A new generation of AEC Professionals are leveraging the power of Building Information Modeling (BIM)
early in the design phase for coordination, interferences and visualization. Civil Engineers are using
tools for BIM to reduce errors and omissions, fast track project design and streamline documentation.
This presentation is a live presentation in AutoCAD Civil 3D and Autodesk InfraWorks 360.
1-D Fundamentals of Railroad Engineering
(1 PDH)
Presenter: Crew Heimer - Antietam Economics
Railroads are a new growth industry in the US. Deregulation in the 1980’s allowed costs to be squeezed
out and rates to be lowered, and with the completion of the Interstate Highway network each year
congestion and trucking costs are rising. Now the railroads are gaining freight market share faster than
the truckers. Key lines are busier than ever before and at capacity, yet rail traffic is anticipated to nearly
double in the next thirty years. Atlanta is at a crossroads of key Northeast-Southwest and MidwestFlorida routes and the railroads are both adding more tracks (lanes) just to handle existing rail traffic.
High Performance Communication Skills for Professional
