“The engineering program [at George Mason] is amazing. They have exactly the right mix of full-time professors and adjunct professors who tell you what it’s like in the real world.”

Engineering Ways to Give Back

The way alumna Ingrid Davis-Colato sees it, Mason Engineering’s faculty helped her build a rewarding career as a water resource engineer. She’s determined to do the same for others.

“I want to pay back a little of what Mason gave me,” says Davis-Colato, BS Civil and Infrastructure Engineering ’16, MS Civil and Infrastructure Engineering ’19.

Her career journey began when she moved to the United States from El Salvador at age 19, learned to speak English, and earned associate degrees in engineering and business administration from Northern Virginia Community College.
