The award is presented annually to outstanding undergraduate or graduate students in the fields of Engineering, Architecture or Computer Science. The main purposes of the Scholarship are to promote Engineering, Architecture and Computer Science, foster stronger ties between the Tri-State AAAEA and the community at large, and provide assistance to outstanding college students throughout the Tri-State area of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
Hella is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Transportation Planning and Engineering at NYU Tandon. Her doctoral research investigates the potential impacts of autonomous vehicles on the transportation infrastructure. Wassim is a Ph.D. Candidate and research assistant as a part of the Infrastructure Monitoring and Evaluation (RIME) group at Rutgers University. His research work is focused on prestressed concrete beams with bonded/unbonded Fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP) tendons. John is currently a master’s student studying Structural Engineering at Rutgers University and part of the RIME group. His thesis involves analyzing the flexural behavior of prestressed concrete beams with FRP tendons.
Congratulations to this year’s recipients.
