Engineering Instructor

Karen Groppi

BS Civil Engineering, MS Civil Engineering, Structures
With Cabrillo College since 1999

"It is a great profession. There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege."
Herbert Hoover

Now it is the engineer's higher privilege and greater challenge to elevate the standards of living and justice for all inhabitants of the world, and to do it without harming the earth or any of the vast array of beings who call it home.
