Message from the Interim Chair

Welcome to the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering.  Thank you for visiting our website.

We congratulate Dr. James R. Martin on his new appointment as dean of the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, and express our sincere appreciation to him for his service as our department chair.  During the past five years, Dr. Martin provided a big-picture vision, brought in new partnerships and millions of dollars in funding, established new degree programs, facilitated capital improvements inside and outside of Lowry Hall, and was an example of great determination for excellence.  We wish Dr. Martin all the best at the University of Pittsburgh.

Thanks to the work of dedicated alumni, faculty, staff, students and others, there are many exciting things happening within the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering.  The $5 million endowment of alumnus Gerald Glenn and his wife Candice continues to accelerate our growth as a department of excellence.  We are just completing our first year of a groundbreaking restructuring of the department backed by $2 million from the National Science Foundation.  Our students continue to compete at the national level and receive prestigious awards.  Our faculty continue to receive major, multi-year research awards.  A myriad of us continue to provide local, national and global service that brightens the future of others.  For more examples, explore this website and visit us at

We invite prospective undergraduate students looking for the academic opportunity that will best prepare you for professional practice to come join us.  We invite prospective graduate students interested in performing transformative and impactful research to come join us.  We invite alumni wanting to reconnect, as well as anyone else wanting to connect, to come join us. 

Sincerely yours,

Ron Andrus
