11 from engineering recognized in UB tribute to authors

Published June 3, 2014

Eleven faculty from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are among those who were honored at “An Anthology of Recognition: The Sixth Salute to UB Authors.” The event recognizes authors, contributing authors and editors who have published full-length scholarly books over the course of the past two years — from January 2012 through December 2013 — as well as those authors whose books may have been inadvertently missed since the first “anthology” was held in 2007.

 Production of scholarly and creative works is an integral part of UB’s mission, says Alex Cartwright, vice president for research and economic development. “As faculty authors at our highly regarded public research university, you truly have contributed to this important mission,” Cartwright wrote in the program for the event. “You have memorialized your ideas in books and this, in turn, shapes the university and builds its legacy.”

SEAS authors, their departments and book titles are:

  • Rajan Batta and Changhyun Kwon, Industrial and Systems Engineering, editors, “Handbook of OR/MS Models in Hazardous Materials Transportation.”
  • Michel Bruneau, Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, “The Emancipating Death of a Boring Engineer.”
