Four Civil Engineering students, all members of the American Society of Civil Engineers student chapter, were able to attend the Transportation Research Board annual meeting last month, thanks to a generous donor.

The students attended different sessions, including UAS applications for civil infrastructure condition evaluation, connected and automated vehicles, sustainability, and resiliency.
