Great news for the kind of engineering that can keep communities safe.

Our own Colorado State University is working hard within the engineering department to minimize the effects of natural hazards on vulnerable communities.

That hard work will continue thanks to the renewal of funding.

"The National Institute of Standards and Technology has renewed a $20 million partnership for a Colorado State University engineering center designed to improve community resilience planning for natural hazards. The funding will extend the center of excellence’s work for another five years, allowing its researchers to apply the modeling system they’ve developed to actual communities."
