The Louisiana Section of ASCE hosted a Virtual Awards Ceremony in late September. Dr. Tom Iseley was recognized for his outstanding contributions to the Civil Engineering Profession. As a Wall of Fame recipient, Dr. Iseley will be listed on a plaque on the wall at the Louisiana Engineering Foundation Building in Baton Rouge.
Iseley began as an assistant professor with Louisiana Tech University in 1988. He advanced to a full tenured professor where he established the Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) in 1989. He was also one of the five founding directors of the North American Society of Trenchless Technology (NASTT).
As a result of his efforts at Louisiana Tech, Dr. Iseley has received the highest awards in the construction industry: inducted into the National Academy of Construction, inducted as a Distinguished Member into ASCE, inducted into the NASTT Hall of Fame, and receiving the 1993 Trenchless Person of the Year.
In 2020, Dr. Iseley returned to Purdue University having been appointed a Distinguished Fellow with academic rank of full Professor of Engineering Practice. While Dr. Iseley has been at Purdue, he has established the cooperative relationships with BAMI-I, UESI, and TTC through conducting such programs as Utility Investigation Schools, Auger Boring School and Certification of Training in Asset Management.
