It was a clean sweep: Over the weekend NJIT students won the regional steel bridge contest as well as the concrete canoe contest.  This marks the second year in a row that NJIT has won both contests.  >>
2012
Some two dozen civil engineering students at NJIT were thrilled last Sunday as they took first place in the 2012 Concrete Canoe Competition for the New York metropolitan region.  >>
2010
NJIT civil engineering students have for the fifth straight year taken first-place honors at the annual Metropolitan New York Region Steel Bridge Competition this past weekend. Some 25 students–including many seniors–will work past NJIT's May 17, 2010 commencement to ready the 20-foot-long model steel bridge for the next step.  >>
The ASCE Student Chapter at NJIT received first place in every competition that they entered at this weekend's 2010 Metropolitan Regional Conference held at FDU in Teaneck. Beginning on Friday evening, undergraduate civil engineering student Luz Zidziunas won the the Mead Technical Paper Competition for her paper "Ethics and the Engineer of 2025." On Saturday, NJIT's Steel Bridge Team again emerged as champions of the Regional AISC/ASCE Student Steel Bridge Competition. Under the highly able leadership of their advisors (Professors John Schuring, Alan Slaughter and Anthony Massari) and co-captains Tien Tran and Giancarlo Fricano, the NJIT team also placed first in every single scoring category including Structural Efficiency, Construction Economy, Stiffness, and Aesthetics. The team now advances to the Steel Bridge Nationals, which will be held at Purdue University on Memorial Day Weekend.  >>

The New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has presented the Educator of the Year Award to John Schuring, Stabile Professor for Innovation and Technology at NJIT. (ATTENTION MEDIA: To interview Schuring as an expert, contact Sheryl Weinstein at 973-596-3436.) >>
A team of 25 NJIT civil engineering students—including many seniors—will be working round-the-clock through graduation to ready a 20-foot-long model steel bridge for a prestigious national competition.  The team qualified for this important event by taking first place in the recent Metropolitan Region Steel Bridge Competition. >>
2008
Much whooping and cheers could be heard for miles along the New Jersey waterfront as a team of NJIT civil engineering students ascended to the throne for the third consecutive year as top civil engineering students in the New York Metropolitan Region.      >>
2007
Two New Jersey Institute of Technology infrastructure experts are available to discuss steel arch truss structure; metal fatigue; deteriorating infrastructure and more. >>
2006
 NJIT civil engineering professors John Schuring and Walter Konon are available to discuss the structural safety of the New York City building hit yesterday by a small aircraft. >>
2005
Three New Jersey Institute of Technology experts are available to discuss levee rebuilding, sewer and underground utilities and waste water management-all issues facing rescuers and future reconstruction efforts in areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama damaged by Hurricane Katrina. >>
John Schuring, PhD and PE, is professor of civil and environmental engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). He holds several U.S. patents for developing methods of treating polluted soil. He is an expert in pile foundations, differential settlement of structures, and landslides. He has worked on engineering projects for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. >>

“It appears that the levee failures in New Orleans were induced by subsurface seepage through the soils, not by overtopping,” said John Schuring, PhD and PE, professor of civil and environmental engineering at NJIT. “Given the fact that the levees were built and retrofitted many times over the years, and also given the fact that other weaknesses in the soil may exist, care must be taken when the city is dewatered to avoid another failure.” >>
John Schuring, PhD (at right), chairman of the civil and environmental engineering department at NJIT, was one of four individuals who were recognized for their work with the ACE Mentor Program at its fifth annual scholarship breakfast on June 9 at the Newark Club. The ACE Mentor Program is designed to help high school students become aware of college and career opportunities in the design and construction field. >>

“During construction, pieces are still coming together, so there is definitely some vulnerability,” says John Schuring, in response to the parking deck collapse in Atlantic City. “Also, the loading on the structure is unpredictable during construction.” A multi-story structure such as a parking deck also relies on the strength of concrete cured just days earlier. “Sometimes,” he adds, those strengths may be overestimated because the concrete is not fully cured.” >>
