The University at Buffalo is launching the Institute for Bridge
Engineering, which will develop plans for bridges that are
resistant to natural and manmade hazards, as well as examine ways
to build safer, more cost-effective bridges using advanced
materials, smart technology and other devices and train the next
generation of bridge engineers.
