Construction science prof Youngjib Ham is helping to develop next-generation building and civil engineering educational tools in a $300K National Science Foundation-funded research project.  

In the project, Ham is creating digital, interactive civil/building engineering systems for students to explore and control real-world problems in classrooms using smartphones and 'smart' sensors.  

Ham will learn how these ‘cyber-physical’ systems and simulations affect students’ interest, engagement, and perceptions of the field.
