Priscilla P. Nelson, PhD, professor in the NJIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will receive a notable civil engineering award next month as a leader of the design and construction industry who has improved peoples' lives around the world. At a special reception in Washington, D.C. on March 31, 2011, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will award Nelson the 2011 Henry L. Michel Award for Industry Advancement of Research.

"In selecting you for this award, the selection committee particularly noted your visionary leadership in the development of innovative research and education programs," said Patrick J. Natale, ASCE Executive Director.

Nelson http://www.njit.edu/news/experts/nelson.php, who served as NJIT provost from 2005-2008, has a national and international reputation in geological and rock engineering and the particular application of underground construction. She has over 20 years of teaching experience, has mentored many students, and has more than 120 technical and scientific publications to her credit.

Her previous experience includes 11 years at the National Science Foundation (NSF) concluding her service as senior advisor to the director of NSF. During her time at NSF, she acted in many capacities, including program director for the Geotechnical Engineering program, director for Professional Opportunities for Women in Research and Education Program, director of the Civil and Mechanical Systems (CMS) Division, and as program manager for the NEES (Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation). She received the NEES Community Visionary Award in 2005.

Nelson was appointed to the faculty in civil engineering at The University of Texas at Austin from 1983 through 1996, rising from assistant through associate and full professor ranks. She was elected to The Moles, an association of the heavy construction industry (1995), and ind
