Ayyub Named to Executive Committee of ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division


Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor and Director of the Center for Technology and Systems Management Bilal Ayyub was appointed to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Committee on Technical Advancement Infrastructure Resilience Division (IRD). 

Formally approved by the ASCE Board of Direction at its January meeting in Miami, the IRD merges three existing ASCE units that have synergistic activities in this arena – the Committee on Critical Infrastructure (CCI), the Council on Disaster Risk Management (CDRM), and the Technical Council on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering (TCLEE).

The primary role of the IRD is to develop a common approach to advance the concepts of resilience in our nation’s civil infrastructure and lifeline systems, foster cross-communication and develop collaborations around the impacts of natural hazards on civil infrastructure, facilitate the development of guidelines and standards, and disseminate knowledge throughout the civil engineering community. In addition, it will actively coordinate with other ASCE entities as well as allied associations and other stakeholders on resilience concepts.

More information about the IRD is available on the ASCE News website
