Michael Tormey is a second-year student double-majoring in Civil Engineering and Economics. Originally from Central Maine, he has loved his time at Northeastern and been passionate about taking on as many responsibilities and experiences as possible. As a campus tour guide, he promotes almost daily Northeastern and the College of Engineering with prospective students, for example. He has conducted research with Civil Engineering Department Chair Jerome Hajjar and is active in the American Society of Civil Engineers, as well as the Institute of Transportation Engineers. He has traveled on the Civil Engineering Dialogue of Civilizations trip to India with Dr. Auroop Ganguly, studying Climate Change Science and Policy. Now, he is developing an independent research project that he will conduct alongside the same Dialogue trip, this year traveling to Singapore, Jakarta, and Bali. His project will focus on sustainable land use and green space development in Southeast Asian coastal megacities. Deeply interested in site design, he will be doing his first co-op beginning in July at VHB’s Watertown office in a land development role.
