A fellow of American Society of Civil Engineers, Marcozzi is also an active member of the National Society of Professional Engineers, ASFE, the Geoprofessional Business Association, Green Building Council and the ASTM Sustainability and Soil and Rock Committees.

 In 2000, he was the first engineer to be awarded Delaware Young Engineer of the Year by the Delaware Council of Engineering Societies. 

At UD, Marcozzi has served as an adjunct professor in the College of Engineering. He is currently a member of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering’s advisory committee. 

Hastings is a supervising engineer (bridge design) with the Delaware Department of Transportation. He earned his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in civil and environmental engineering in 2000 and 2001, respectively. 

He is a member of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures.

“We are delighted to have two of our alumni honored by the Delaware Engineering Society this year. They are both outstanding individuals who have dedicated their careers to serving the public through planning, design and construction of civil engineering projects throughout the region. We are proud to call them Blue Hens,” remarked Harry (Tripp) Shenton, chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
