Uksun Kim, chair and associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, has been selected to receive the "Outstanding Engineering Educator Award" from the Orange County Engineering Council. Kim will be honored at the council's Feb. 22 awards banquet, held during National Engineers Week.

"It is a great honor to receive the award," said Kim, adding that he hopes the award will help "increase the visibility of Cal State Fullerton's outstanding engineering programs."

His colleague, Pratanu Ghosh, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, recently had the opportunity to collaborate with his counterparts at Duy Tan University in Vietnam. Ghosh trained Vietnamese civil engineering faculty members about the U.S. education system and provided information about the design, construction standards and code specifications of reinforced concrete structures in this country. The training, coordinated by University Extended Education, was part of an ongoing collaboration between the two universities.
