JHQ: Zurica, Josephine [MC2003] new principal of Dagher Engineering


Young Alum Combines Service with Sustainability to Make Mark in Green Building Design

2014 09 30 zurica

Just 11 years out of college, Josephine Zurica ’03 was named the new principal of Dagher Engineering.

At 34 years old, after just six years as a professional engineer, sustainable design specialist Josephine (Kaiser) Zurica ’03 was named principal of Dagher Engineering. The former Peace Corps volunteer credits her experiences abroad with helping her to develop the leadership skills and ingenuity to foster sustainable solutions.

The Michigan native arrived at Manhattan in fall 2000 and declared a civil engineering major before Mohammad Naraghi, Ph.D., and Bahman Litkouhi, Ph.D., professors of mechanical engineering, revealed another side of engineering: sustainable design, energy and thermal systems. She quickly changed her major to mechanical engineering and never looked back.
