The Institute of Flight Structures
The Institute of Flight Structures was established within the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics through a grant from the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation. The institute provides graduate training in aerospace and aeronautical-related applications of structural analysis and design.
The National Center For Infrastructure Studies
The center resides in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and provides a professional environment for faculty and students from various disciplines to focus on the massive problems of city, state, and regional infrastructure. Together with industry and government affiliates, it aims to put into practice the technological tools and knowledge bases that are needed to address infrastructure issues. The Center is active in major infrastructure projects through a consortium of universities and agencies.
