Department Highlights and News
“This is my first time outside of North America, so the initial experience was both exciting and shocking,” said Ross McCarthy, Master’s Student in Transportation Infrastructure and Systems Engineering. McCarthy is conducting research at The University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom as he works toward a graduate level certificate in International Research Abroad. Specifically, he is working in the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC) located on the university’s main campus.
The Charles E. Via, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering welcomes hundreds of new undergraduate and graduate students to campus this fall. The department is also excited to welcome two new faculty members to the group. Dr. Kevin P. Heaslip joins us in the National Capitol Region and Dr. Katerina Ziotopoulou joins the group in Blacksburg.
John T. Novak, Professor Emeritus for the Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Perry L.
