CEE Welcome Message | 08-21-2013

Welcome back to Yong-Kwon Cho, MSCE '97
A big “welcome back” goes out to Dr. Yong-Kwon Cho, MSCE ’97, who is returning to CEE as an associate professor this fall. Cho comes to Georgia Tech most recently from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he taught civil engineering after earning his doctorate at the University of Texas. A 2011 recipient of the NSF Early Career Award, his research interests include building energy, construction automation, and transportation. He is leading the development of a new paradigm in these research areas by challenging the current understanding of science/engineering technologies in construction and sustainable built environments. Among the challenges he is investigating are robotizing several critical construction tasks; and developing sustainable energy improvement methods for buildings.
