Tuscaloosa, Ala. – Dr. Wei Song and Dr. Stephanie Vereen, both assistant professors in the UA department of civil, construction and environmental engineering, were selected to participate in the American Society of Civil Engineering Excellence in Civil Engineering Education Teaching Workshop to be held during June in Fort Myers, Fla.

Song, who came to UA in 2012, teaches structural engineering courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Vereen joined the faculty in 2013.

The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. ASCE has hosted the workshop for 14 years bringing in faculty members from across the globe.

To attend, faculty members must apply, and those accepted are named ExCEEd 2014 Teaching Fellows.

The workshop will be at Florida Gulf Coast University on June 22-27.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
