2011 LA Section and LA Branch Outstanding Younger Member


Mr. Huang is a Civil Engineering Associate for the City of Los Angeles, Bureau of Engineering.  He has over nine years of structural engineering experience and is currently working on street rehabilitation and widening projects for the Street Improvement and Stormwater Division.  His most recent project is the completion of the N. Spring Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project.


His can-do spirit reminds us to dream big and always work tirelessly for what we believe in, and his work proves to us that we can always do more to better civil engineering community and rise up to challenges.  His commitment and enthusiasm for our profession has been consistent for many years and George is an invaluable member of our Civil Engineering community.

Contribution to the Profession:

Positions: 2015-2017 WRYMC Conference Co-Chair, 2014-2015 Past-President & Professional Development Chair, 2013-2014 President & Section/Branch Liaison, 2012-2013 President-Elect, University Outreach Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and MLAB Student Activities Chair.  Additionally a vital element of the following committees: Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition, Student Night and Job Fair, CANstruction, and E-Week, along with assistance to countless other committees.  Active ASCE YMF member since 2005.

During his recent term, Mr. Huang proudly presided over an extremely active board of 20 members and 12 committees who work together to serve over 300 members and 2,000 subscribers in the Los Angeles Area.  On average this past year, Mr. Huang attended up to 4 events/meetings a week on weeknights and weekends.  When he is not at committee meetings helping to plan the Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition, E-Week at City Hall, Student Night and Job Fair, and CANstruction, he is helping other committees pursue their goals.  The trouble with George is that his humble spirit never allows him to take credit for his selfless work, so those who know him and work with him personally know exactly how hard it is to track how many countless hours (and many times, financial resources) he has dedicated to ASCE.  His passion is in helping ASCE LA YMF grow.  Under his leadership, YMF established a relationship with local city council members by hosting Egg Drop at City Hall, which was attended by over 100 students and politicians.  That event has grown to a week-long celebration this year, reaching out to over 500 students across LA and building priceless relationships with leadership throughout City Hall and the public sector.  ASCE continues to thrive under his support and mentorship as Past-President.  He doesn’t slow down, as he is taking on WRYMC co-chair next year.


Through his volunteering activities at ASCE, George helps educate elementary, middle school, and high school students about math, science, and the joy of discovery.  He also interacts with university students to provide them with insights into the professional world and encourage them to become leaders in civil engineering.  His enthusiasm and passion for student outreach has inspired many student leaders as well as our YMF leaders about how important it is to give back to our community and increase the communication between professionals and incoming graduates.  In addition to the major outreach events mentioned above, George set up various resume workshops which benefited over hundreds of students in the five local universities of the Los Angeles Area, including University of California – Los Angeles, University of Southern California, Loyola Marymount University, California State University – Los Angeles, and California State University – Northridge.
