The US Department of Education has awarded a third (!) prestigious graduate traineeship to CE/ESE at UVA. The Graduate Assistantships in Areas of National Need (GAANN) program seems to diversify and train the next-generation of higher-education instructions.
The program will once again focus on teaching and research related to smart, resilient, and sustainable infrastructure – with a focus on applying methodologies from systems engineering, cyber-physical systems, and and data science to challenging infrastructure applications.
Our department has previously had two highly successful, back-to-back GAANN traineeships. Those awards funded 22+ fantastic PHD students in civil and systems engineering to various extents. Lisa Colosi Peterson will continue to serve as program director for the third award.
