Among them:

  • Two students and an alumnus were recognized in August 2015 as third place winners in the ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition. Current 5th-year students Tony Tai-An Yue and Junye (Spencer) Zhou, along with 2014 graduate Nick Fish, worked with Visiting Assistant Professor Yong Huang on the competition during the spring 2015 semester. The work will be published in an upcoming book and exhibited at the ACSA National Convention in Seattle in March. Learn more...
