overview

Dan Budny joined the University of Pittsburgh faculty as Academic Director of the Freshman Programs and an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering in January 2000. He had been Associate Professor at Purdue University. He holds the B.S. and M.S. degree from Michigan Technological University, and a M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Michigan State University. His research has focused on the development of programs that assist entering freshman engineering students, including academically disadvantaged students, succeed during their first year. In the years Dan has been at the University of Pittsburgh, he has taught over 3000 engineering students or almost 200 students per semester. Dan's teaching responsibilities in the SOE are extensive. He also identifies service learning projects for ENGR0715. Dan has also taken over the fluid dynamics course and laboratory for the CEE department. Upon taking over the fluids lab, he has implemented extensive rehabilitation efforts by completely revising the course and rebuilding the entire laboratory with modern teaching equipment and latest experiments. Another contribution that Dan has made to the School and the University is when he assumed the responsibility for Plus 3 Study Abroad Program. He doubled the number of countries that our students visit as part of their international experience and has integrated business students to provide a multidisciplinary experience for everyone involved. Dan was recognized for his innovations by receiving the 2004 National Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education. Dan has given over 80 invited lectures and workshops and won 6 national teaching awards. He has also been awarded 11 national educational service awards. The latest award is The International Engineering Educator Award at the 37th IGIP Symposium held in Moscow, Russia. This award is presented by Internationale Gesellschaft Fur Ingenieurpadagogik (The International Society for Engineering Education) and is given each year to the top engineering educators around the world. Dr. Budny is only the second American to receive this award. He has served the profession in numerous capacities, ranging from conference chair to chairing or serving on the national board of directors for various components of the American Society for Engineering Education ASEE. He has also served as the editor for 31 conference proceedings in the engineering education area. Most recently Dan has taken the concept of service learning and merged it into the senior design course in the Civil Engineering department. Through his efforts the university has been active in Ecuador and Panama. By working with the local Engineers Without Borders (EWB) chapters the students have been able to work on real world design projects. One of the projects in Ecuador just won the 2012 Engineers Without Borders USA Premier Project Award for the water project in Tingo Pucara.
