Jarvis Jointer (BSCE 2004) will co-chair a newly formed engineering admissions task force to address the challenge of providing a Purdue Engineering education to a larger number of African Americans and other underrepresented groups.
Purdue University Civil Engineering senior Anthony Phan says he really appreciates the Purdue University Asian American and Asian Resource and Cultural Center (AAARCC). "Being a student at Purdue University means being away from my family and my cultural traditions, but with the AAARCC, I have a new family that I can be a part of."
As part of the Engineering Rising to the Challenge initiative, the College of Engineering at Purdue University joined industry and government partners to host a free webinar on "Advancing Driver-Centric Automation to Enhance Safety and Efficiency in Freight Trucking" on June 16 from 2:30-3:45 p.m.
More people are speeding during the pandemic, but the number of speeding tickets has decreased. The Indy Star quoted Civil Engineering’s Darcy Bullock explaining that while law enforcement is effective at getting people to slow down while they're present, the effect goes away when the troopers do.
Roads always seem to need repairs. Luna Lu is giving concrete the ability to "talk" and even heal itself. Her lab at Purdue University is developing technology that would allow concrete-paved bridges and highways to reveal more accurately when they need repairs and to come equipped with materials that respond to potential damage.
Stephanie Calhoun (BSCE 2000), a vice president at Clark Construction, has been named to Crain's Chicago Business' 2020 list of Notable Women in Construction and Design. The list recognizes accomplished women in the field of construction, architecture, and commercial/industrial interior design.
Pools across the U.S. are set to reopen in the coming weeks. If recommended chlorine levels are maintained as usual, the pools themselves should pose minimal risk of spreading the coronavirus to swimmers, says a Purdue University engineer who studies pool water decontamination.
CE graduate student Joshua Harmon has received the National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. The NDSEG Fellowship is a competitive fellowship awarded to students pursuing doctoral degrees in science and engineering disciplines.
Congratulations to the Purdue ASCE Seismic Design team! They placed 17th out of 46 earlier this semester in the 2020 Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition and were 1 of only 23 towers that survived both ground motions!
Congratulations to Dominique Oden and Casey Rodgers on being named the CE Outstanding Seniors for 2019-2020! They were selected due to their outstanding service to Purdue University, the community, and their academic achievements.
Congratulations to the Purdue Civil Engineering undergraduate research team, advised by Assistant Professor Mirian Velay-Lizancos! They were named a top three presenter at the 2020 Spring Undergraduate Research Conference Symposium for their poster titled, "Effect of elevated temperatures on Recycled PP fiber-reinforced cementitious composites performance under flexural stresses." This event highlights the scholarly work and creative endeavors undergraduate students have been engaged in through oral or poster presentations and awards top students with both financial and non-financial awards.
State-of-the-art methods in steel and concrete composite construction are the focus of a new series of online courses from Purdue University's top-ranked Lyles School of Civil Engineering. The courses are for working engineers and technical professionals looking to update their skills and log professional development hours, as well as for graduate students.
Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering Professor Shirley Dyke says she expects lunar dwellings to begin emerging in a decade, helping reach out to further space habitation — and she wants her research to help bridge that gap.
If you’ve ever seen a Google Street View car rolling down your block, you know what a mobile mapping system is. At Purdue, we’re using algorithms and artificial intelligence/deep learning to fuse this data to create a detailed digital picture of the planet.
PhD candidate Miguel Montoya has been appointed a member of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Standing Committee on Asphalt Pavement Construction and Rehabilitation (AFH60). This committee is concerned with the construction, rehabilitation and recycling of asphalt pavements. Areas of interest include: construction methods and procedures, in-place recycling techniques, plant production issues which impact construction operations, and paving equipment.
