The Franklin County Chapter Outstanding Engineering Student Award recipient for 2013 is Alexander (Alec) Sichko. The award is presented to an engineering student from an ABET-accredited Ohio engineering school. The recipient was judged on scholastic achievement, participation in professional, technical, and other activities.
Alec graduated from The Ohio State University in June of 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Civil Engineering and is currently in the Master’s program at The Ohio State University and is expected to complete this program in spring of 2014. He is currently working on researching the application of mechanical rebar couplers in high strength reinforcement applications. Alec grew up in Grandview Heights, Ohio.
At the end of his undergraduate program, Alec took and passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. He is a member of the Structural Engineers Association of Ohio and ASCE.

Alec is a product engineer at a Columbus, Ohio fiber optic company, PLC Connections (PLCC). He maintains a part-time status during the school year and works full-time over academic breaks. His primary role is to work with customers who are seeking non-standard products and therefore need personal attention with their components. He works with multidisciplinary teams to develop solutions that are acceptable to the customer in terms of product design, timeframe, and cost.
Congratulations to Alec Sichko, E.I., in being the 2013 FCC Outstanding Engineering Student!
