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

The New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has presented the Educator of the Year Award to John Schuring, Stabile Professor for Innovation and Technology at NJIT. (ATTENTION MEDIA: To interview Schuring as an expert, contact Sheryl Weinstein at 973-596-3436.)

Schuring, of Blairstown, a professor of civil and environmental engineering, has 35 years of experience in the areas of geotechnical and civil engineering in both the academic field and professional practice. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in engineering geology, hydraulics, hydrogeology, and construction materials. He is the founding director of the NJIT Hydraulics and Hydrogeology Laboratory, and also served as an academic administrator for eight years, first as department chair and later as interim dean of the Newark College of Engineering.

Schuring is a dedicated teacher and mentor. He was recently designated a University Master Teacher and was also awarded the prestigious Van Houten Award, NJIT's highest teaching honor. He is the longtime faculty advisor to NJIT's student chapter of ASCE.

Under Schuring's guidance the chapter has enjoyed a high level of activity. NJIT students have won numerous competitions and awards, while at the same time learning about professional careers, leadership, teamwork, creativity, and community service. Of special note is the chapter's performance in the Annual Student Steel Bridge Competition sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and ASCE. Over the last decade, the motivated team has captured first and second-place finishes in the New York Metro Region, regularly advancing to nationals.

Schuring's current research and consulting interests include engineering geomorphology, bridge scour, deep foundations, and ground water treatment. His funded research, which has totaled more than $2.5 million, has been supported by US Environmental Protection Agency, U
