Cadets attend Transportation Research meeting
Civil Engineering cadets Joseph Robertson, Josh Olsen, Caleb Rodgers, Nick Lacour, and Alex Wilson recently went to Washington, D.C., to participate in the Transportation Research Board’s 88th Annual Meeting.
The event, which attracts more than 10,000 policy makers, researchers, and transportation engineering professionals, is an intensive technical program that includes more than 3,500 presentations.
For four days cadets participated in a wide array of sessions and committee meetings on underwater bridge inspection, soy based additives for waterproofing concrete, nanotechnology in asphalt pavement design, bioremediation of soils and sub grade and solutions to meeting the nation’s energy needs.
Through interaction with policy makers, professors and students from other colleges, cadets gained a better perspective of how innovative research and cutting-edge technology are being used to address today’s transportation and mobility needs. The trip was made possible through funds from the School of Engineering.
