S&T researchers are joining a national consortium of universities focused on improving the durability and extending the lifespan of the nation’s transportation infrastructure. The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded $15 million in grants in June to create two new national University Transportation Centers (UTCs) to advance research and education programs that address transportation challenges facing the nation. Missouri S&T will join the UTC led by Washington State University – the only center focused on the durability and lifespan of transportation infrastructure.
Dr. Jenny Liu, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering at S&T, serves as our university’s lead faculty at the center.
The UTC is named the National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability and Life-Extension. Missouri S&T will join researchers from Washington State University, Texas A&M University, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Utah, the University of Colorado, South Dakota State University, Florida Atlantic University, the University of Mississippi, Alabama A&M University and Tennessee State University.
