Speaker Bio

Dr. Camilla Saviz is Professor and Chair of the Civil Engineering Department. She received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University, an M.B.A. from the New York Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Davis in the area of hydrodynamic and water quality modeling. She joined the University of the Pacific in 1999 and is a registered Professional Engineer in California. Her teaching, research, and professional interests include water resources engineering, sustainable engineering, and engineering education.

Dr. Saviz started her teaching career as a Calculus 2 tutor for one of her Calc 2 classmates in junior college. She couldn't believe that she got paid for doing something that was so much fun, which is also true of her job at Pacific. Her interest in Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources led her along a wandering path that has included work as a Hydrologic Engineer, a Hydraulics Lab Teaching Assistant, a sea kayaking instructor, and a bar tender, among others. Dr. Saviz has been active in service to the profession as a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). She has had the privilege of learning from colleagues and serving on various ASCE committees, as a Region 9 Governor, an ABET Program Evaluator, and as a Mentor at the ExCEEd Teaching Workshop.
