In fall 2015 I was invited to join the faculty of Civil Engineering & Engineering Mechanics at the University of Arizona as an Associate Professor of Practice to develop and lead a new Construction Engineering Management (CEM) emphasis within the Department. After working as a professional civil engineer for many years, I am excited to bring my experience to campus to educate students and establish strong ties with industry and alumni. In the CEM emphasis, students will be inspired to pursue careers in engineering and construction. The CEM emphasis maintains strong ties with industry to keep the program practical and relevant and to provide companies with ready-access to students with practical training in construction. To sustain the CEM emphasis into the future, the College of Engineering is seeking to establish a $5 million endowment. Our goal in CEM is to connect industry with students and students with industry.
