Addressing civil engineering challenges

last modified Feb 05, 2018 11:45 AM
Sensor CDT students teamed up with students and staff from the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction to think collectively about sensor solutions to challenges in the built environment.

Students from all Sensor CDT cohorts teamed up with students and staff from the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction to find potential sensor solutions for a variety of challenges and questions in civil engineering and the built environment.
