Professor John E. Taylor has been recognized as one of the nation’s most distinguished engineering and construction professionals after being elected to the National Academy of Construction.
Election to the academy is reserved for exceptional leaders representing all sectors of the built environment who have made a significant impact on the engineering and construction industry. Taylor is one of 36 new members selected for the 2020 class through a rigorous peer nomination and election process.
Civil engineering students are now able to earn a concentration in Construction and Infrastructure Systems Engineering (CISE), an official designation that lets employers know they are ready for careers in the construction industry.
Georgia Tech is one of five universities that has been selected to participate in AT&T’s Climate Resiliency Community Challenge.
The company has awarded a team of researchers from the Institute $50,000 to study flood resilience in the Southeast using new climate data from the Argonne National Laboratory. The researchers will assess risks and help local governments with climate adaptation and resilience planning.
In just one day, could you devise a way to reduce construction time by 50 percent using virtual reality? That was the challenge presented to four teams of civil engineering students at the third installment of Tech Blitz—an all-day hackathon focused on pushing the technological boundaries of the construction industry.
How could robots improve the installation of new canopies at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport? That was the challenge for teams of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering students and industry mentors at Tech Blitz Nov. 9, a day-long hack-a-thon designed to highlight the School’s work driving technological change in the architecture-engineering-construction industry.
