Texas A&M University was one of the eight North American universities selected to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AutoDrive challenge, a three-year competition that allows university teams to develop and demonstrate their own autonomous vehicle.
In honor of 40 years of teaching and research, Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud was recognized at the Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Annual Congress in early March 2018 at a special symposium held in his honor. Briaud has also been named a Geo-Legend by Geo-Strata magazine, a series honoring professionals who have left a serious impact on the field of geotechnical engineering.
For Invent for the Planet, civil engineering graduate student Bansi Rajesh Khajuria and her fellow teammates came up with the idea to develop an app that would help families reduce water consumption and waste.
Civil engineering junior Anh Duong, along with 29 other engineering students, who participated in a 15-day volunteer internship helping the Federal Emergency Management Agency assess damages to public infrastructure sites impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
The rules of the road are changing. Algorithms that are used to help predict driver behavior in years past are facing a changing landscape as more and more automated vehicles are on roadways. The emergence of these automated vehicles is just one aspect of roadway safety that is covered by Dr. Dominique Lord’s new book “Safe Mobility: Challenges, Methodology and Solutions.”
Texas A&M Engineering’s graduate program was ranked 12th overall nationally and remained seventh among public institutions in the latest U.S. News & World Report survey, “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2019.”
The wind and water have subsided after Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas in August, but the road to recovery is long. To help the process move along, 32 engineering students from Texas A&M University spent their winter break assisting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as site inspectors.
At the November 2017 Aggies Invent challenge civil engineering master's student Morgan Boudier and four other Aggies developed a specialized augmented reality software with the ability to tell engineering project teams if a project they are working is on track.
