"The next generation of bridge engineers will be called on to do more with less to maintain and manage an aging bridge system. The speakers provide students with insight on what is needed, what is planned and what is underway in these areas."
-Malcolm T. Kerley
, P.E. Chief Engineer, Virginia DOT
"This is a unique opportunity to be mentored by experienced bridge engineers from across the country."
, P.E. Corporate Bridge Engineer, Arora and Associates, PC
"The need for developing tomorrow's transportation leaders today is as critical as the need for infrastructure investment in this country. We can't do one successfully without the other."
, P.E., Director, Bridge Division, Texas DOT; Vice Chair, AASHTO Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures (Retired)
Bridge Engineering Guest Speaker Series
The Bridge Engineering Guest Speaker Series engages experts from the national bridge community to share their knowledge on a variety of themes with students enrolled in graduate and undergraduate bridge engineering courses in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at UB. Beginning with the Fall 2012 semester, it replaced the Bridge Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series, which was part of a master's program at UB. The new series still focuses on issues related to bridge engineering, but is not associated with any particular course. NYS professional development credit is available for professional engineers who participate in the webinars. Advance registration is required if PDH credit is desired.

Bridge Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series
The Bridge Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series engaged experts from the national bridge community to share their knowledge on a variety of themes, including specialized technical topics, project development, public policy and management issues.
The series began in November 2009, in collaboration with AASHTO’s Subcommittee on Bridges & Structures, and with the support of the Federal Highway Administration. Held on Mondays starting at 5:00 p.m. ET, these lectures were part of a master's program in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at the University at Buffalo that focused on bridge engineering. In addition, professional engineers were able to receive NYS PE professional development credit by either attending the seminar in person or by attending the webinar. The series concluded in May 2012.
