Dr. Mary Beth Hueste is an Associate Professor and Holder of the E.B. Snead '25 Career Development Professorship II in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University. She joined Texas A&M University in 1998 where she is a member of the structural engineering faculty and Division Head for the Construction, Geotechnical and Structural (CGS) Division. Dr. Hueste is also the Structures Program Manager for the Constructed Facilities Division of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute and a served as a member of the Leadership Team for the NSF Mid-America Earthquake Center. She is a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and Chair of ACI-ASCE Committee 352 (Joint and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures). Dr. Hueste is conducting research focused on earthquake resistant design of reinforced concrete structures, structural rehabilitation and repair including seismic retrofitting, performance-based seismic design, probabilistic assessment of structural performance, and design and evaluation of prestressed concrete bridge structures. She has conducted research sponsored by the NSF Mid-America Earthquake Center, the Minerals Management Service, and the Texas Department of Transportation; and has authored or co-authored over 60 technical papers and reports. Dr. Hueste teaches courses in structural engineering, including statics, reinforced concrete design, and prestressed concrete design along with the undergraduate structures capstone design course and the general civil engineering undergraduate captstone design course.
