Dr. Julius Chang

The Faculty Relations Committee of the Columbia Engineering Alumni Association and its Board of Managers has selected Dr. Julius Chang to be one of two recipients of the Alumni Association’s 2017 Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award. Dr. Chang is a Lecturer in Discipline in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. This award, created by the Alumni Association, is given annually to honor faculty members of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science for excellence in teaching undergraduates.

Dr. Chang was nominated and selected as the recipient by a committee, which was composed of alumni and students. Selection was based upon an evaluation of a candidate’s dedication to education, teaching skills, and sensitivity and responsiveness to student needs. The selection is a tribute to an instructor’s most important task at Columbia—the teaching of the next generation of Columbia-trained engineers and applied scientists.

Dr. Chang teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in civil engineering at Columbia, primarily in the area of construction engineering and management. He is a practicing engineer, with over 25 years of professional experience in the design and management of transportation infrastructure facilities. Dr. Chang received his undergraduate and doctoral degrees in civil engineering from Columbia. He is a registered professional engineer in the State of New York.

The Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award will be awarded to Dr. Chang at Class Day ceremonies on Monday, May 15, 2017.
