Alumnus Pedro Wasmer Establishes Professorship
"Civil engineering at Maryland afforded me a very civil education."
"The Pedro Wasmer endowed professorship will help the department tremendously in recruiting bright young faculty scholars," said civil engineering Chair Ali Haghani. "It will provide resources for supporting these new faculty members in building a strong research program in the early years of their careers."
Wasmer said he was inspired to give by the encouragement he received while a student here.
"Civil engineering at Maryland afforded me a very civil education," he said. "I was able to learn about architecture, history, economics and politics. I was very satisfied with the results of my efforts, and have always appreciated the freedom given me by the dean and my professors."
