After three years of effort by University of Rhode Island engineering students, a school in rural Guatemala has what American schoolchildren take for granted: working toilets.
Before college, Jessica Damicis (’15) never left the country. Today the 23-year-old has traveled to six countries on three continents, lived and studied in Spain, interned in Kenya and built a wastewater treatment system in Guatemala.
An international team including civil engineering Assistant Professor Vinka Oyanedel-Craver is developing a better desalination process.
Civil engineering alumnus (’13) Samuel Osei applies his classroom training to a vastly important task: making sure bridges are safe for travelers.
URI students, members of the Engineers for Sustainable World (ESW) club exhibited their technology during the National Sustainable Design Expo in Washington, DC.
As the world rushes to use nanoparticles in everything from disease treatment to oil spill clean up, the impacts on the environment and human health remain uncertain. Recognizing the importance of understanding these effects, the National Science Foundation recently awarded civil and environmental engineering Assistant Professor Vinka Oyanedel-Craver a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award.
Associate Professor Mayrai Gindy is studying how to make bridges safer and their pavement smoother.
Civil and environmental engineering student Emily Serman interned at NASA during four summers and became a key player in the agency’s climate change research.
We’re building nationally recognized leaders. Alumnus Francis Marinaccio (’10) was recently selected to participate in the elite American Public Works Association Emerging Leaders Academy.
Civil Engineering professor Mayrai Gindy, along with electrical engineering professors Kumaresan and Boudreaux-Bartels, received a grant from Champlin Foundations to develop a Mobile Bridge Testing Laboratory for undergraduate students.
