Dr. Minnetyan is the faculty advisor for the Steel Bridge and the ASCE Student Chapter.
Courses taught include CE320-Structural Analysis and CE442-Steel Design.
Dr. Minnetyan's primary research is directed toward quantification of damage and degradation in composite structures, assessment of structural durability and damage tolerance.
