Jerome Hajjar Receives AISC Lifetime Achievement Award
Jerome Hajjar, CDM Smith Professor and Department Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University, has been honored with the American Institute of Steel Construction’s 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award for his impact on AISC and the structural industry as a whole. The award bestows special recognition to individuals who have provided outstanding leadership over a sustained period of years to AISC and the structural steel design, construction, and academic community.
Dr. Hajjar has made significant contributions to the development of innovative steel and composite steel/concrete structures through experimental testing, computational simulation, and the development of design concepts and criteria. He has developed new resilient and sustainable structural systems; strength and stability design provisions for steel and composite structures; and nonlinear analysis formulations for structural stability and performance-based seismic design of steel and composite structures.
