Memorial Service Scheduled for Dr. Tseng Huang

December 19, 2006

A memorial service for Emeritus Professor Dr. Tseng Huang will be held on Saturday, January 6. Dr. Huang passed away December 5 after a brave battle with a rare form of cancer.

Dr. Huang retired from the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department in January 2001 after 40 years of service to the university. During his tenure at UT Arlington, he served as a beloved teacher, mentor, advisor, researcher and friend to countless numbers of students, professionals and faculty.

Dr. Huang had a long and illustrious record of quality research in the analysis and design of engineering structures. In 1980, he received UTA’s Distinguished Research Award. He published in prestigious journals such as the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering and the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics. In 1993, he was awarded the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers ISOPE Award.

The Tseng Huang Endowed Professorship was recently established in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department with generous contributions from his legions of admiring former students from across the globe, his family, colleagues and friends. The Professorship is the first of its kind in the department and is a fitting tribute to Dr. Huang’s many years of dedicated service to UT Arlington and the civil engineering profession.

Dr. Huang’s family will receive friends beginning at 3:30pm. at the Moore Funeral Home, 1219 N. Davis Drive in Arlington. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Tseng Huang Professorship Endowment.
