Message from the School Head, "G.S." Govindaraju

This past year has been one of many incredible achievements and efforts made by our alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends. From responding to natural disasters around the world to innovating on structure design in our labs at Hampton Hall, the past 12 months have seen many giant leaps forward into shaping the future of the world for the better.

An Epic Career

Over the course of his 43-year career at Turner Construction Company, Pete Mitnick (BSCE '77) was involved in major development projects across the United States — including the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

Innovative Public Infrastructure

Purdue civil engineering alumna Erica Johnson spearheads massive double decker bridge project spanning Ohio River — one of the biggest, most ambitious design projects in America.

CE 299 Summer Course: Developing Tomorrow's Infrastructure

Over the summer, high school students from around the world came to Purdue University for its weeklong civil engineering course: Developing Tomorrow's Infrastructure. Throughout the week, the students learned about how civil engineers change the world and the critical role they will continue to play in the future.

20 Years of Excellence at Scale

First-time visitors to the Robert L. and Terry L. Bowen Laboratory for Large-Scale Civil Engineering Research know they’re entering a large facility, but before stepping foot inside, it’s difficult to comprehend just how big Bowen Lab truly is.

In Command

On July 7 during a ceremony in Gulfport, Mississippi, Capt. Constance (Danner) Solina (BSCE '00) assumed command of NCG 2. She is the first woman to serve as the commodore of a naval construction group.
