Institute of Bridge Engineering

The Institute of Bridge Engineering (IBE) is educating new and mid-career individuals in emerging aspects of bridge engineering and conducting research that can advance the state-of-the-practice in the design and retrofit of bridges.

The IBE aims to:  

  • Develop technologies for low-impact (rapid construction and environmentally sensitive) bridges that are    resistant to hazards
  • Disseminate educational material useful to engineers and DOTs
  • Increase the availability of a specialized master’s degree to distance learners
  •  Deploy reliable decision-support systems
