Two new honors for Professor Miroslaw Skibniewski

Professor Miroslaw (“Mirek”) Skibniewski, A. James Clark Chair in Construction Engineering and Management, received two new honors this month for his activities in construction research and education.

He was elected as a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Engineering, an organization similar in scope and mission to the National Academy of Engineering in the United States. Through its foreign members such as Professor Skibniewski, the Academy intends to intensify its contacts and exchanges, and to coordinate various leadership initiatives with counterparts in the United States and worldwide.

Additionally, a title of Honorary Professor was bestowed upon Professor Skibniewski by Moscow State Industrial University. As stated in the letter by MSIU Rector, “this is the University’s highest honor awarded from time to time to internationally prominent academics whose leadership in scholarly work and education of students are of highest importance to the future development of human resources for the industrial base and the economy worldwide.”

This spring is as busy as usual for Professor Skibniewski. Besides his regular teaching and research, he continues to serve as Editor-in-Chief of “Automation in Construction,” an international research journal published by Elsevier . Also this month, he is representing the University at a U.S. National Science Foundation invitational workshop in Dubai titled “Civil Engineering Infrastructure Systems: High Performance Materials, Monitoring and Management.”
