The Civil Engineering Department is one of the most productive and progressive academic units in the College of Engineering. We are first in the College with respect to research expenditures per faculty. Our enrollment is over 1200 students. The faculty, staff, and students have transformed the department to a new level of excellence in research and teaching that directly addresses local and national engineering needs by providing innovative solutions to the most challenging problems facing our nation's infrastructure.
Dr. James Leininger Passed Away
We are saddened to report that Dr. James Leininger (CE Associate Chair) passed away Tuesday, November 13, after fighting leukemia for several years.
This is truly a paramount loss for his family and ours in the Civil Engineering Department. Dr. Leininger was one of the pillars of our Department who contributed immensely to its current success with his penchant for working seven days a week.
He was a role model for many of us with the highest and quintessential character traits of a steadfast work ethic, honesty ingrained with rectitude, and love for students. The indelible memories of his intrinsic collegial nature will be well respected and remembered for years to come by his friends and colleagues. All these values made him an outstanding faculty member and friend.
Please join me in conveying our heartfelt condolences to his family and wholeheartedly thanking them for having shared him with us.
Dr. Leininger has donated his body to the medical science at UT Southwestern; there will be neither funeral nor memorial services. However, the Department will hold a memorial reception in his honor here at UTA soon.
Dr. Ali Abolmaali
