Civil engineers name NJIT's John Schuring Educator of Year
Date:5/13/2009

S Department of Education, US Air Force and more. Union Carbide, AT&T, BP America and other corporations have also supported his work. Schuring has published 50 articles in symposia proceedings, technical journals, and special technical publications. Schuring has also consulted on dozens of transportation projects for regional agencies, including NJ Department of Transportation, the NYS Thruway Authority, the Triboro Bridge and Tunnel Authority and more.

He has served as a media expert during national infrastructure emergencies by providing interviews to news outlets such as the New York Times, CNN, Associated Press, the television stations in and around the metropolitan region and more. He has been an excellent source for helping to interpret the engineering aspects of an emergency to the public.

Schuring holds five U.S. patents for a novel technique to treat contaminated soil and ground water. The process, known as "Pneumatic Fracturing," allows cost effective cleanup of buried hazardous and toxic waste dumps in order to protect drinking water supplies. Pneumatic Fracturing is now in commercial use throughout the U.S and abroad, and, to date, it has been applied to decontaminate more than 250 polluted industrial and government sites.

Schuring's other honors include the Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award from NJ's Research and Design Council, the Harlan J. Perlis Award for Research and more. Schuring is a registered professional engineer and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society. Schuring received a PhD in geotechnical engineering and a BE in civil engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology, and a MCE in geotechnical engineering from the University of Alaska.
