George Winter's (Ph.D. Civil and Environmental Engineering, 1940) research led to the first publication in 1946 of the American Iron and Steel Institute Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. Most of the research and the writing of this code can be attributed to George Winter. It soon became the world-recognized standard for this type of construction and has been published abroad in many languages.
Research in Civil & Environmental Engineering covers an extremely broad range of topics. What binds them together is a context of public works and service - research that benefits the public good. Whether in civil infrastructure, engineering systems & management or environment, the research conducted in Cornell's CEE School is at the cutting edge of technological and scientific developments.
