Joseph C. Nadeau
Associate Professor of the Practice and Director of Undergraduate Studies
Joe Nadeau earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Lehigh University in 1989, and then continued his education and earned a S.M. in Civil Engineering in 1991 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He then matriculated to the University of California at Berkeley where he earned his Ph.D., in Civil and Environmental Engineering in 1996.
Dr. Nadeau’s primary research focus is in the areas of theoretical and applied mechanics, micromechanics, composite materials, and probabilistic methods.
