Department of Civil Engineering

UT Arlington

I have been an engineering educator for nearly 20 years now, and I still believe that two of the greatest skills that I acquired from my undergraduate education were how to think and how to learn. These are not only important in engineering, but also in life in general. I strive to instill the importance of critical thinking and lifelong learning in my students by incorporating various techniques into classroom instruction, engaging them in activities that develop them wholly and encouraging them to pursue goals beyond their academic achievements.
