Alumni Spotlight: Erin DeMarco


Meet Cal Poly alumni, Erin DeMarco, a Project Manager for Transportation Projects, and a bridge engineer at Jacobs! Erin graduated from Cal Poly in 2007 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. She shared that her “specialty is transportation structures, which includes bridges, retaining walls, and land-side port structures. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to be the design manager and structures lead for the TraPac Backland Redevelopment Project for the Port of Los Angeles. It was the first fully automated port terminal on the West Coast. Currently, I have the amazing opportunity to serve as the design manager on the Los Angeles River Path, an 8-mile walking and biking path along the Los Angeles River. It is the largest active transportation project in the United States.”


During her time as a student at Cal Poly, she was “the Events Officer for Chi Epsilon, a student member of SCE, and worked as a barista at Starbucks. I was also a teaching assistant for the engineering chemistry lab for a few years, and graded papers for a few civil engineering classes. However, some of my favorite memories include attending the MxPx/Reliant K concert at the Rec Center, salsa club dances, line dancing at the Grad, and Thursday BBQ lunches in the ag department!”
