Greetings from Gainesville,
Faculty in the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure & Environment (ESSIE) are leading a new long-term program focused on monitoring, understanding and managing threats along the Florida coastline. This iCoast initiative is a multidisciplinary effort including many colleagues from the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and the University of Florida.
Please join us in welcoming five new faculty in the Department of Civil & Coastal Engineering and two new faculty in the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences. These new hires complement and expand the diverse research and teaching skills within our faculty and enhance opportunities for collaboration within and beyond ESSIE.
Our students continue to shine in and out of the classroom. The ASCE concrete canoe and student steel bridge teams continued their long history of success in national competitions, placing first and second overall, respectively.
We look forward to a bright future educating the next generation of change makers and leading research that supports a sustainable and thriving Florida.
Dr. Kirk Hatfield
