Clarkson Professor Named Fellow By American Society Of Civil Engineers

Levon Minnetyan, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Clarkson University, has been named a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The designation is considered one of the highest honors that civil engineers can receive from their peers.  

Founded in 1852, ASCE represents more than 120,000 civil engineers worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. Minnetyan’s elevation ceremony took place during a recent ASCE chapter meeting held in Syracuse. In bestowing the grade of fellow on Minnetyan and other ASCE members, former ASCE president Delon Hampton pointed out that “the work of these prominent civil engineers realizes a major goal: to serve as stewards of the public infrastructure and guardians of public health and safety.”

  To qualify as an ASCE fellow one must be a member in the society for at least ten years and must be a legally registered engineer or land surveyor. The member also must be qualified to direct, plan or design engineering works, and have had responsible charge of important industrial business, construction, educational, editorial, research or engineering society activity.  

Minnetyan joined the faculty of Clarkson in 1978. He received his doctorate in structural mechanics from Duke University. His research focuses on damage and degradation in composite structures and assessment of structural durability and damage control.
