Dr. Mary Beth Hueste joined the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University in 1998. She 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. Dr. Hueste is the Structures Program Manager and Acting Division Head for the Construction, Geotechnical and Structural (CGS) Division within the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. She is Fellow of the American Concrete Institute, Chair of ACI-ASCE Committee 352 (Joints and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures), and Voting Member of ACI Committee 374 (Performance-Based Seismic Design of Concrete Buildings). She teaches courses in structural engineering, including reinforced concrete design and prestressed concrete design.


A registered professional engineer in Kansas and Texas, Dr. Hueste is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, American Concrete Institute, American Society of Engineering Education, Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, Structural Engineers Association of Texas, Chi Epsilon National Civil Engineering Honor Society, and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society.


While a graduate student, she received a National Science Foundation/University of Michigan Graduate Traineeship in Infrastructure Facilities. She was recognized with the Zachry Award for Excellence in Teaching from the Department of Civil Engineering for 2001-2002. In 2004 the Texas A&M Engineering Program named Dr. Hueste the Ruth and William Neely 52/Dow Chemical Faculty Fellow. She was appointed as the holder of the E.B. Snead 25 Development Professorship II from 2007-2012.


Dr. Hueste holds a Bachelor of Science degree from North Dakota State University, a Master of Science degree from the University of Kansas, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan; all in Civil Engineering.
