Civil Engineering Seminar Series

As part of the graduate seminar series, the CSEE Department welcomes a speaker from academia or industry every week to present their work. The goal of the seminar series is to give our graduate students an opportunity to learn more about current cutting edge research and challenging applications from civil and structural engineering. A few seminars every semester are delivered from our doctoral students to give them the chance to share their research findings and practice their presentation skills.
