As part of the College of Engineering's annual summer camp program, faculty from The Center for Civil Engineering Earthquake Research host a Civil Engineering Camp, designed for students ages 14 -1 7.
During the camp, students learn about bridge types, bridge construction, water resources, water treatment and soil liquefaction. Fields trips may include locations such as local bridges or waste water treatment plants.
View upcoming camp events and dates on the College of Engineering's website.
The NEES Research Experience for Undergraduates program is a 10-week internship where undergraduate students participate in graduate-level research in the field of civil engineering. The University of Nevada, Reno hosts students each year in the Large Scale Structures Laboratory.
Students have the opportunity to assist in various research projects, and they also participate in cohort activities where they can network with undergraduate researchers, tour other NEES facilities and present research posters at the end of the summer.`
The NEES@University of Nevada, Reno equipment site is funded in part by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
