President Emeritus G. Wayne. Clough was named the recipient of the University System of Georgia’s Elridge McMillan Lifetime Achievement Award, for his leadership and service to public higher education. The Elridge McMillian Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest honor the USG bestows.
Professor Susan Burns, associate chair of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech, has been selected as the 2020 Engineer of the Year by the Georgia Society of Professional Engineers.
Researchers in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering have developed a device that kills pathogens in drinking water using an electric field. The tubular system can fit inside water distributions systems to deliver safe drinking water.
Georgia Tech Provost Rafael L. Bras will step down around Sept. 1, following a decade as the Institute’s chief academic officer. Bras will remain at Tech as a professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.
Most of us take for granted the roads and bridges we travel every day. What we don’t know is that almost four in 10 bridges are 50 years or older. Many of the nation’s bridges are approaching the end of their design life, and 614,387 bridges in the U.S. earned a grade of C+ on the American Society for Civil Engineering’s 2017 Infrastructure Report Card.
An interdisciplinary research group from Georgia Tech has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to design an advanced self-propelled robot to explore the subsurface and record a range of signals as it advances.
When cyclones or other massive oceanic storms make landfall, their giant waves batter coastlines and sometimes cause widespread damage. Now, an international team of researchers has analyzed months of data of large nearshore waves to provide new insights that could help improve the designs of a variety of coastal structures from seaports to seawalls to better withstand destructive waves.
