EGN 5458 (Statistical Applications for Engineers)

This course provides rigorous introduction to fundamentals of data analysis and statistics motivated by engineering applications with the use of modern  software. Emphasis is placed on real-world applications to engineering problems.

EGN 5458 Syllabus

Resilient Infrastructure and Disaster Response (RIDER) Center is established

New RIDER Center will serve as a technology hub for resilience and disaster research. The center aims to establish and develop emergency plans that fit the needs of both urban and rural communities.

New National Science Foundation Project: SCC-CIVIC: Rural Resiliency Hubs

The goal of this project is to study and evaluate the role of rural libraries as resiliency hubs with a focus on the interactions between community actors, population needs, environment, information, and infrastructure to foster disaster resilience in communities.

New National Science Foundation Project: Excellence in Research: Bending the Curve for Vulnerable Populations

This project takes a community-engaged, multi-disciplinary approach to address the pressing research problems for concurrently occuring hurricanes and pandemics, with a focus on the challenges facing vulnerable populations.

National Science Foundation Project: Cope-RCN: Resilient Rural Infrastructure 

The objective of this project is to explore how to achieve adaptive capacity and resilience for Gulf coastal communities, which has the potential to extend to other rural communities in the U.S., and to foster a new understanding of the complex interactions among the key elements of community resilience in  rural coastline areas.

Article in the Conversation: How Rural Areas Like Florida's Panhandle Can Become More Hurricane-ready?

It is extremely challenging to prepare for very fast Category 5 hurricanes like Hurricane Michael. But proactive planning and community-level decision making can ensure that no one is left without assistance.

National Science Foundation Project: Excellence in Research: Integrated Hazard and Traffic Modeling for Massive Evacuation in Florida under Uncertainty of Hurricane Track

This project integrates coastal hazard modeling with comprehensive evacuation modeling while considering the uncertainty of hurricane track. With the integration of these models and the capability to examine the interdependencies of the critical infrastructure, better dynamic evacuation models can be produced.

National Science Foundation Project: SCC-RCN: One Bridge at a Time: Bridging the Digital Divide for the Well-Being of Aging Populations in Smart and Connected Communities

The objective of this project is to develop a collaborative, multidisciplinary research platform and to study the relationship between Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC) and the built environment (e.g., varying urban densities and demographics), centered on creating S&CC that incorporate the aging population to improve the wellfare of growing aging population in the U.S.
