CDR Corinna Fleischmann, P.E.
Civil Engineering, Associate Professor and Section Chief
Department of Engineering
U.S. Coast Guard Academy

Commander Corinna Fleischmann is the Section Chief and Program Chair for Civil Engineering at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. She has a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Connecticut, a M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas, Austin, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy from which she graduated in 1998.  

CDR Fleischmann joined the faculty at USCGA in 2004 and was selected as a member of the Permanent Commissioned Teaching Staff in 2009. Her research focuses on mitigation of impacts of storm water in the urban environment. While at the Academy, she has been an assistant coach on the men’s and women’s swim teams, faculty affiliate for the women’s softball team, advisor for numerous clubs, and a member of the faculty senate.  

Prior to joining the Coast Guard Academy faculty, CDR Fleischmann was assigned to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Elm where she served two tours: as a Deck Watch Officer and Assistant Navigator and as the Operations Officer. In 2001, CDR Fleischmann became a member of the Facilities Engineering Branch at the USCGA. During this tour, she served as both the Safety Officer and the Construction Officer where she was the Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative (COTR) as well as Civil Engineering Project Manager for the Academy’s $5.2 million dollar construction program including all aspects of the construction process: cost estimation, general scopes of work, management of change orders and contractor evaluations.
