Recent Highlights

Recent faculty efforts from the Civil Engineering Program reflect Dr. Liping Jiang’s publishable paper titled, "Refuge Lake Reclassification in 620 Minnesota Cisco Lakes under Future Climate Scenarios." Dr. Kishor Shrestha’s two publishable papers titled, “Quality of Road Maintenance Works Performed by State Force versus Private Contractors in Nevada” and “Carbon Dioxide Emissions by the Transportation Section and its Impact on Health in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.” Mr. Matt Egloff completed US Shooting’s Safe Sport Policy Training. In 2012, the US Olympics and US Paralympics created the Safe Sport Policy and Training to improve athlete safety across the US Olympic Committee’s (USOC’s) 47 National Governing Bodies (NGBs). Mr. Larry Hunter led a six-student team to a second-place finish in a design-build competition. The students were Chance Sparrow, Cody Wiers, Daniel Van Dyk, Chris Liebel, and James Cutler. Congratulations to all! On a lesser note, Dr. Brian Kukay was part of a 13-person ASCE/SEI Blue Ribbon Panel team who recently completed a review of the proposed ASCE/SEI Manual of Practice: Structural Fire Engineering. Dr. Kukay will also be contributing to a special project of the ASCE/SEI Committee, on the Performance of Wood Construction, used to improve the quality of light-frame wood construction in the United States.
