From Lubbock to Houghton, Tech Welcomes New CEE Chair
It was Michigan Tech's "wonderful reputation" that first got the attention of Audra Morse. That reputation was enough to convince her to leave Texas Tech to lead Michigan Tech's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
On July 1, Morse began her tenure as chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Morse comes to Michigan Tech from Texas Tech, where she had been the associate dean for undergraduate studies for more than 4 years.
Morse earned her bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degrees from Texas Tech and has been on the faculty there since 2003. She is a licensed professional engineer and a board-certified environmental engineer with the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists. She is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Water Environment Federation, the American Water Works Association, American Society for Engineering Educators and the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists. However, she is most active with ASCE, serving at both the global and regional levels. Read the full story.
