The Computer in Civil Engineering Award was established by the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) in order to recognize outstanding achievements and contributions in the use of computers in the practice of civil engineering. It’s rewarded annually to a member of the ASCE with the presentation of a plaque and cash prize.
This year the award will be presented to Dr. J.P. Mohsen, Ph.D., Professor and Department Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering here at UofL.
