Chien-Chung Chen, Ph.D., P.E.
Associate Professor of Civil Engineering
Chen is an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering. His teaching and research interests lie primarily in structural engineering. Also, he is the faculty advisor of the ASCE student chapter at PNW.
Chen’s current research interests include axial and flexural behavior of concrete encased composite members, axial behavior of concrete filled steel box columns, self-healing concrete and structural health monitoring.
I became a structural engineer because I wanted to design structures, such as buildings and bridges, that are safe, economical, and sustainable—structures that harvest energy efficiently and use limited natural resources effectively.
