“To know the work that you’re doing has a direct impact on industry,” says Faizan UI Haq Mir, a PhD candidate in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, “is very fulfilling.”
Reda Snaiki, a PhD student in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, won the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) Fluid Dynamics Student Paper Competition earlier this summer.
