Eleven high school seniors from the Hammond Academy of Science and Technology (HAST) are gaining unique learning experiences through weekly classes at CIVS. The students are taking part in the national “Project Lead the Way” program.
In March of 2013, CIVS was co-recipient of the Chanute Prize for Team Innovation, awarded by the Society of Innovators of Northwest Indiana (NWI).
CIVS was recognized as being a model across the nation for its integration of simulation and visualization technologies to solve real world problems, combined with its application driven approach and close partnerships with collaborators.
Steve Dubec, a former graduate research assistant at CIVS, recently accepted a position as a Project Engineer with Lazar Anode, one of CIVS’ research project sponsors. Steve was among two other interns in review for this position. In his new position, Steve is responsible for ensuring a project’s design functions and to work on design improvements.
