Aggies Create Structure

See More Impact Stories @usuaggielife

Aggies working at USU’s SMASH Lab develop skills that advance the nation’s and the world’s infrastructure needs. The magnitude of these projects requires engineers who can understand the relationships between environment, resources, and production, and who are able to design and implement programs and procedures that bring these projects into being. Aggie civil engineers are shaping the world’s infrastructure.

Forbes recently took notice of USU civil engineering researcher Patrick Singleton and Ph.D. student Prasanna Humagain’s study that looked at how transportation users might prefer teleportation over their current means of transportation. This faculty and student collaboration is one of the many examples of ways in which students and faculty engage in collaborative research and experiential learning opportunities at Utah State University.
