UGA’s civil engineering program wins national award

ASCE Award glass trophy in front of Driftmier Engineering CenterThe University of Georgia College of Engineering was recently selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to receive the 2024 Walter LeFevre Award in the large program category. This honor recognizes the college’s civil engineering program for its “excellence in promoting ethics, professionalism, and licensure” within the curriculum.

Established in 2007, the Walter LeFevre Award commemorates the legacy of Walt LeFevre. LeFevre was highly respected and well known for his extensive contributions to engineering education and practice, accreditation of engineering programs, and his leadership within engineering professional organizations.

The award was presented at ASCE’s National Civil Engineering Department Heads Conference in Knoxville, TN, June 4, 2024.

We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition from ASCE,” said Stephan Durham, interim dean of the college and Juneau Construction Company Professor in Civil Engineering. On a personal note, this award is pretty special, not just because we are a fairly new program compared to many of our peers, but I also took a class with Dr. LeFevre and can remember him speaking on the many things this award represents.”
