After obtaining her degrees, Diane Knappert Clark specialized in creating innovative design and construction solutions to mitigate environmental impacts.
IN HER OWN WORDS
"Graduate studies at Thayer involved hard work and involved long hours - for both men and women. The closeness of all the grad student offices allowed for a lot of sharing of ideas and camaraderie. After the novelty of having women there wore off, we were just fellow grad students. The friendships I made during those years are still cherished."
LEADING THE WAY
"I never really focused on leading the way, or being the first female D.E. at Thayer. I stayed on for the D.E. because I was committed to the biomass research team that I was privileged to be a part of, and my desire to be the best engineer that I could become."
