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.
The Cybersecurity of Critical Infrastructure Summit had a successful inaugural event last week on the Texas A&M University campus. The summit brought together experts from government, private industry and academia to debate and share ideas about protecting the United States from growing cybersecurity threats around the world.
A multidisciplinary team of researchers at Texas A&M University has been awarded an Early Concept Grant for Exploratory Research from the National Science Foundation to study the viability of collecting infrastructure monitoring data by volunteer citizen scientists from the general public.
Texas A&M Engineering is expanding its research and education capabilities as part of the recently announced RELLIS Campus. The new campus, which will be located at a revamped and renamed Riverside Campus, was announced Monday by Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp.
