We have a large structures lab/ research center here at Lehigh called ATLSS. ATLSS stands for Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems. It is a national center for research and education. Many national, state and local industry and government organizations and agencies actually come to ATLSS to meet their research goals. ATLSS has two world-class structural testing facilities, one of which is in Fritz Lab on the main campus. They test structures as well as the materials used in structures such as steel and high strength concrete. Last year, I’m pretty sure there was a group of researchers testing the response of structures during seismic activity. I’m not sure what exactly they are testing right now, but there are so many cool things happening up there all the time! If you want to know more about ATLSS, click here.

Hi! I'm Katie. I am a junior here at Lehigh and I am double majoring in Civil Engineering and Architecture. This Arts-Engineering program is a five year program where I will graduate with two degrees. I am from Quakertown, Pennsylvania, and I am one of the few commuting students at Lehigh. Despite of this, I am the Vice President of the Steel Bridge Team, and I played club rugby. Additionally, I do kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at a local martial arts gym. If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask! View all posts by lukatie15
