The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering began an important new chapter in its century-long history in the fall when Georgia Tech’s undergraduate building construction curriculum officially became part of the civil and environmental engineering program. With the change, all undergraduates who wish to study construction will earn a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, marrying the technical excellence the School is known for with a broad array of courses specifically tailored to construction engineering and management careers.
When Kathrine Udell stepped on campus at Georgia Tech a few months ago, it was already familiar ground. Udell spent much of her senior year at Kennesaw Mountain High School working on a research project with School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student Atiyya Shaw. In fact, she’d been so active in the work that she already has two published academic papers to her name. Not exactly the typical starting resume for an undergraduate student.
Civil engineering undergraduate Andrew Melissas is the 2016 Buchberg Scholar. Engineering firm Simpson Gumpertz & Heger picked Melissas late last year. The award is named for School of Civil and Environmental Engineering alumnus Brandon Buchberg, B.S. 2000, M.S. 2002.
A new five-part School of Civil and Environmental Engineering video series debuts January 7. The series, “I am CEEatGT,” is designed to explore what life is like for young people pursuing a civil or environmental engineering degree.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering honored its best teachers, researchers and staff Nov. 23 at the School’s annual awards reception. The accolades recognize the best classroom teaching, the top research efforts by faculty and students, and service excellence from School staff.
Rebecca Yoo knew long before she arrived at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering that she was interested in international development, but having been born into a family of liberal arts majors, she wasn’t sure how engineering could play a role. After hearing more about civil engineering at a seminar for undecided engineers, however, she knew she’d found her niche.
Originally from Davenport, Iowa, Annabel McAtee is one of the top twirlers in America and was a bronze medalist at the 2012 World Twirling Championships. The second-year environmental engineering major has taken a very unorthodox path to Georgia Tech that included living in a circus community in Hawaii and taking high school classes almost exclusively online. Find out more about more about the Georgia Tech Golden Girl below.
"As I sat down to reflect on my experience this summer, I came to the realization that it is incredibly difficult to put something so life changing into words." Read more from Shannon Evanchec about her research trip to India last summer, which was funded by the Joe S. Mundy Global Learning Endowment.
