Student Merit Competition

About the Student Merit Competition

EISG organizes a student merit competition to promote excellence in risk analysis research for engineering and infrastructure management. Students at any level are encouraged to submit an extended abstract on their research during the SRA call for presentations at the Annual Meeting (occurs in the spring). Finalists are selected and invited to submit a video presentation, usually in the late summer. Each finalist should also be prepared to present his or her research during the SRA Annual Meeting in December. The winner is announced at the EISG business meeting at the annual meeting.
