ARLINGTON—University of Texas at Arlington Architecture Lecturer Jerry Kunkel has been advanced to the grade of Fellow by the American Society of Civil Engineers, following a vote by the organization’s Membership Applications Review Committee in January.
The ASCE defines a Fellow as “a person who shall have demonstrated a broad responsibility for engineering work of major importance.” Fellows have attained leadership roles within the fields of civil engineering practice, research or academia. It is an honor that less that six percent of the Society’s members have attained.
Kunkel received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and his master’s degree in structural engineering from UT Arlington and is a registered professional engineer in thirty-seven states. He has been a senior lecturer at UT Arlington since 2003, teaching senior- and graduate-level structure courses in both the School of Architecture and the College of Engineering.
