Google Scholar Profile

Ece Erdogmus is a Professor and Chair at the School of Building Construction at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Prior to joining Georgia Tech, she was a professor and Associate Director at the Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). She has PhD and MS degrees in Architectural Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University and a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the Middle East Technical University in Turkey. She is a licensed civil/structural engineer in the state of Virginia. 

Erdogmus’ interdisciplinary research team (Built Environment Lab) works on improving the built environment in a variety of ways: new design and construction (masonry design and construction, sustainable and resilient design and construction with low-cement materials, design choice using XR); Assessment, rehabilitation, and conservation of historical and existing structures (ARCHES) using nondestructive testing and numerical modeling; and STEM education (Augmented/Virtual Reality in STEM education and A/E/C integration). She has authored over 100 peer-reviewed technical articles and led numerous projects funded by NSF, NCMA Foundation, Nebraska DOT, and NPS/NCPTT. 

Erdogmus serves the A/E/C industry through active involvement with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Masonry Society (TMS), Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI), and the Urban Land Institute (ULI). With TMS, she is currently a member of the Board of Governors and main 402/602 Masonry Code and Standards committee; and Chair of the 402/602 structural members subcommittee and the recently completed 14th North American Masonry Conference. She is one of the founders of the Women in Masonry Fund. For ASCE/AEI, she served as the Chief Editor of the Journal of Architectural Engineering and was a member of the AEI academic council for several years.
