Engineering student wins national scholarship

April 11, 2014

A Colorado State University engineering student has been awarded a $10,000 scholarship from the Thornton Thomasetti Foundation.

Cole Brubaker, who is graduating in May with an undergraduate degree in civil engineering, is one of three students in the country selected to receive the foundation’s top scholarship.

The scholarship is awarded to students entering a master’s degree program specializing in structural or architectural engineering and who “endeavor to make an impact on the structural design of buildings.”

Brubaker, who is in the University Honors Program, is travelling to South Korea this summer to work at Chonbuk National University on research related to structural health monitoring. 

This fall, the Littleton, Colo. native will attend graduate school at Vanderbilt University and also work at the Laboratory for Systems Integrity and Reliability (LaSIR), researching and developing new technologies to help detect structural damage. This work will build on the research into sensor networks and damage detection Brubaker conducted last year while at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
