Feb. 20, 2024

Sajad Hamidi, associate professor of physics and engineering at Slippery Rock University, was named 2023 Professor of the Year Award by the American Society of Civil Engineers, Pittsburgh Section, at an awards ceremony, Feb. 17, in Pittsburgh. Hamidi is one of nearly 1,700 members of the national organization's Pittsburgh Section, representing the civil engineering profession in western Pennsylvania.

Each year, the section hosts an Engineers Week Awards Banquet and an awards committee votes to recognize a civil engineering professor in recognition of “continual excellent teaching,” as well as “contribution to professional guidance and development of students,” and the “advancement in their field through publication of meritorious papers, research or practice,” among other criteria.
