Education

University at Buffalo assistant civil, structural and environmental engineering professor Ravi Ranade working on a concrete sample with his PhD student.

Bridge engineers develop the infrastructure that connects communities. They need to be prepared to develop bridges using new construction methods and components, improve the seismic resiliency of bridges and deal with the problems associated with aging infrastructure. Our bridge engineering options prepare students to take on leadership roles in enhancing bridges and infrastructure around the world.
