Running For: Nominating Committee

Campaign Statement

My name is Catherine Sanso and I graduated with my civil engineering degree in 2014. I currently work full-time at Thornton Tomasetti and will be completing my master’s degree at Cooper by the end of the year. I am honored to be nominated to work with the CUAA. Over the last two years, I have attended several CUAA meetings and have personally witnessed the integral function the CUAA performs as it links the current students, alumni, faculty, and institutional goals. If elected, I plan to work with similarly dedicated alumni to serve the Cooper Union community. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities Cooper has provided to me over the years and by serving as a member of the CUAA, I hope to be able to return even a fraction of these opportunities for others.


Civil engineer (EIT) specializing in site planning, stormwater management, grading design, and utility development. Experience in field investigations and construction administration, special inspections, flood zone compliance, and cross-disciplinary coordination with MEP trades.

Each day, I enjoy rising to the complex challenges at the core of my work in civil engineering. After graduating from a rigorous university and excelling in demanding work environments, I feel motivated to pursue opportunities that can develop my creativity and analytics, while expanding upon my experience in applying civil engineering fundamentals to site development and water resource engineering.
