Working with Students
Dr. Hulsey focuses on working with students to achieve a high quality
education. His research is in the fields of bridge engineering and effects of
temperature extremes on structural systems like composite wall panels for
buildings. His work blends a strong experimental component with the
fundamentals of theory. Dr. Hulsey has expertise in mathematical modeling
using state-of-art methods in finite element, finite difference and
theoretical solid mechanics. Funding is available for graduate students to
work on the analysis or testing of bridges.
Major advisor 13 full-time MS students (9 thesis & 4 projects)
Graduate committees 41 students (29 MS and 12 Ph.D.)
Outside examiner 5 students (3 MS and 2 Ph.D.)
Faculty Advisor - National Competition for Students
ASCE Steel Bridge Team Faculty Advisor (Won National Championship 1993, 4th
place in 1995, tied for 1st place in 1996). Obtained a provisional patent
based on the 1998 bridge design. Faculty Advisor for the Civil Engineering
Concrete Toboggan team; Canadian competition, best rookie team 1999 in the
Great North American Toboggan race.
Dr. Hulsey has University and corporate experience. Before coming to the
University, Dr. Hulsey owned and run three high-tech engineering-research
corporations. He has extensive teaching and research experience. He taught at
the University of Missouri Rolla, North Carolina State University and the
University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). While at UAF he has been an active
researcher, served as Department Head and participated in numerous university
