Whether gathering data in the field or analyzing it in the lab, MU’s civil engineering’s transportation research team works to make our mobile lives smarter, safer and more economical.
Thus the highly successful, virtual Transportation Infrastructure Center (TIC) with Charlie Nemmers at its helm was conceived and created to build teams of researchers to respond to areas of existing transportation. But research under the center’s umbrella hasn’t strictly adhered to the tradition of transportation as Nemmers has sought out partners to fill associated research needs.
For the second consecutive year, MU civil and environmental engineering graduate student Boris Claros came out on top in the 2014 Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) student essay competition.
MU alum Jalil Kianfar accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position at the Saint Louis University Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology in January.
