The civil, architectural and environmental engineering department established a new “Distinguished Lecture Series” organized by the System and Process Assessment Research (SPAR) Laboratory, starting this fall. Lectures will be free of charge for students, faculty and other participants.
The lecture series is designed to provoke intellectual discussions on scientific and engineering advances, innovative solutions, and grand challenges in the area of monitoring, assessment and management of infrastructure subjected to multiple hazards (earthquakes, winds/hurricanes/tornados, fires, floods, etc.).
The department will host two to four speakers of national and international renown each year to give presentations to the campus community on a topic of their choice that relates to the theme of the lecture series. Invited speakers will include members of the National Academy of Engineering and program directors of national funding agencies.
The series is made possible through the support of the SPAR Laboratory and the office of sponsored programs. Additional details regarding the lecture series and its speakers will follow in the weeks and months ahead. For more information, contact Dr. Genda Chen, lecture series organizer and SPAR Laboratory director.
