Proud to achieve Chartered Engineer Status through IAgrE
David K. Thaemert, PhD, PE, CEng, FIAgrE, IRPE, FHEA who is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering Hydraulics and River Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire is celebrating achieving Chartered Engineer Status.
“When I was first registered as a Professional Engineer, I was proud to have taken such a significant step in my career and proud to be able to expand my professional portfolio.
Subsequent assignments and confirmation as a Chartered Engineer have further highlighted that this qualification is not a step, but a commitment to a lifelong process of both personal and societal development and improvement, a reminder that any job worth doing is a job worth doing well,” said David.
“As an academic, this process and reminder also serves as an important lesson and role model for students who are on their own path towards achieving professional recognition, he added.”
Dr. Thaemert has provided water resources and general engineering design and management services for a broad variety of infrastructure projects across the geographic spectrum.
He has over 30 years’ experience in the consulting and military engineering sectors, where his efforts have ranged from water rights analyses and administration, to urban stormwater design and floodplain delineation, to stream restoration and river mechanics, in settings from eastern Asia to East Africa to Europe to a broad swath of the US.
David has been a member of the University of Hertfordshire Civil Engineering Programme faculty since 2018, where he is the lead professional in water resource engineering, including hydrology, closed conduit and open channel hydraulics, river engineering, fluvial geomorphology and related environmental subjects.
He is also a registered Professional Engineer (PE) in Colorado and Wyoming (USA), is listed on the International Registry of Professional Engineers, and is a Fellow of Advance HE (formerly Higher Education Academy; FHEA).
