Professor Michael K. Stenstrom, Distinguished Professor in UCLA’s Civil and Environmental Engineering, recently received theĀ  Fair Distinguished Engineering Educator Medal from the Water Environment Federation (WEF) recognizing accomplishments in the education and development of future engineers.

This medal honors Gordon Maskew Fair, a professor of sanitary engineering at Harvard University, who achieved exceptional results in preparing students for the water environment profession.

Beyond the purely technical information, Dr. Fair imparted to his students a desire for environmental harmony and taught them to use their engineering skills toward the realization of that end. His insight into the capabilities and limitations of the field of sanitary engineering inspired research and investigation into emerging areas of concern. This medal commemorates Dr. Fair’s contributions and likewise the contributions of his fellow educators.

Congratulations to Professor Stenstrom!
