Purdue Engineering Impact Magazine Spring 2010

Civil Engineering On My Mind

The cover story in this issue of Civil Engineering Impact focuses on the new George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation Operations Center in Purdue’s Discovery Park, led by CE Professor Julio Ramirez. This multi-institutional center is funded by a $105 million grant from the National Science Foundation — the largest grant in Purdue’s history. The collaborative work of the center faculty and staff will contribute to our understanding of the impact of earthquakes and tsunamis on critical infrastructure. Other articles about our students, faculty, staff, and alumni highlight the diverse talent and experiences of those who are responsible for making the School of Civil Engineering a special place for all of us. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading about the exciting events in CE this year.
