The Department of Civil Engineering is pleased to welcome Dr. Jordan Jarrett to the faculty beginnning in the Fall 2020 quarter.
Dr. Jarrett received her B.S. and M.S. degrees from Colorado State University, with an emphasis on mechanics and structural engineering. She earned her Ph.D. at Virginia Tech in 2013, where her research focused on the seismic analysis of steel structures using the principles of performance based design. Prior to joining Seattle University, she worked at Magnusson Klemencic Associates in Seattle for nearly 7 years. Her consulting experience included steel and concrete structures throughout the United States. She specialized in the design of structures subjected to high seismicity or extreme wind climates, including high-rise towers up to 1,000 feet tall and long span truss frames.
