Ming Ye awarded Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize
Ming Ye, associate professor in Scientific Computing, was awarded the Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). According to the ASCE website, "Research Prizes are to be awarded to members of the Society in any grade for notable achievements in research related to civil engineering. Preference shall be given to younger members (generally under 40 years of age) of early accomplishment who can be expected to continue fruitful careers in research."
According to Dr. Ye, "The Huber Prize is considered the highest level mid-career research prize in civil engineering, and awarded to members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for notable achievements in research related to all areas of civil engineering.
Previous recipients of this award include faculty members from leading engineering programs, including MIT, UC-Berkeley, UT-Austin, Georgia Tech, University of Illinois, and Cambridge.
The ASCE typically awards three to five Huber Prizes each year, one for each of the recognized sub-disciplines of the field. Recipients are all generally younger than 45 and have demonstrated a level of achievement and excellence that bodes well for a long and fruitful career."
