Princeton University, Professorship. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Princeton University invites applications for a faculty position with a preferred start date of September 1, 2018. The search is open for Assistant, Associate and Full Professor appointments. A Ph.D. degree in an appropriate field is required.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of innovation and creativity in research addressing important and emerging topics in civil and environme
The department is pleased to announce that Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens won the ASCE George Winter Award.  The award recognizes the value of the integration of engineering and art in her work.  According to the award letter, she was selected by the Structural Engineering Institute "for your designs of large scale sculptures, which imbue in their makers and users an intuitive understanding between force and form, and serve as focus points for local communities."
Prof. Adriae
February 2,  2018, Prof. Denise Mauzerall was interviewed by Ira Flatow on PRI's Science Friday.  Dr. Mauzerall shared her thoughts on how China’s leaders are pursuing carbon-free alternatives to coal to address the country’s growing energy needs while not choking cities with pollution. https://www.sciencefriday.com/episodes/february-2-2018/
Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership is funding two leading-edge energy and environmental research projects, one to develop direct current (DC) power architecture for smart homes and the other to explore harvesting deep sea methane carbon-neutrally.
The department is pleased to announce that the following CEE faculty were awarded Innovation Funds from the Engineering School for creative new research projects:
“Toward durable low-CO2 concrete: Uncovering ion binding mechanisms to hydrated alkali activated materials using molecular simulation”, PI: Claire White (CEE)
“Predicting Large Scale Deformations of Saturated Granular Continua via Eulerian Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Methods”, PI: Maurizio Chiaramont
Princeton University researchers have found that the climate models scientists use to project future conditions on our planet underestimate the daily cooling effect of clouds, particularly over land.
Mark Zondlo, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at Princeton University and its Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, develops tools to measure air pollution in more sophisticated and nimble ways than previously possible.
Jack Reilly, a member of SHMlab, has been awarded the Best Presentation Award at the 8th Conference on Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (SHMII-8), held from December 5-8, 2017, at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia. The conference was organized by International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure ISHMII (www.ishmii.org).
The title of Jack’s presentation was “Evaluation of the coefficient of ther
An annual event sponsored by SEAS called "Explore Engineering" was held on Friday, November 17, 2017.  Princeton's first-year undergraduates were able to attend this event to get information about the programs in  each of the Engineering School's departments (Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Operations Research and Financial Engineering). &
A wide-ranging discussion of issues surrounding water sustainability kicked off the second season of Princeton Entrepreneurship Council’s TigerTalks in the City. Princeton faculty panelists Eric Wood, Susan Dod Brown Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Howard Stone, Donald R. Dixon ’69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, were joined via videoconference by Adam Wolf, CEO of Arable Labs, Inc. and Natalie Shivers, Princeton University Associat
The department is pleased to announce that Kasparas Spokas has received a School of Engineering and Applied Science Award for Excellence.  This award is given to SEAS advanced graduate students who have performed at the highest level as scholars and researchers.  The department selected Kasparas on the basis of his excellence in courses, research, and teaching during his time at Princeton.
Kasparas is a 4th year graduate student advised by Professor Catherine Peters.
Congratulations
The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season does not end until after Thanksgiving in late November, but it has already been a memorable one. Harvey wrought havoc on Texas in August. Irma, which notched records for size and power, pounded the Caribbean and damaged parts of Florida in early September. It was soon followed by Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico.
PhD Candidate, Tim Michiels, awarded the Hangai prize for his "outstanding paper by a young talented research under 30" at the IASS Symposium in Hamburg.
On August 30, 2017, Richard Garlock and William Faschan of Leslie E. Robertson Associates (LERA) were nationally recognized with the 2017 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards (IDEAS2) for their structural engineering design of Four World Trade Center in New York City.  Some quotes from the judges: “This project has an extremely complex structural system which is elegantly concealed”; “I fully appreciate the complexity of the s
The case for carbon capture and storage — a promising method for reducing greenhouse gases — received a boost recently from a Princeton University study that indicated the procedure would not be prone to significant leakage or high costs related to fixing leaks.
