It was announced today that Dr. Bill Badger will be retiring at the end of the spring 2011 semester.
A little info about one my favorite mentors:
He received his PhD from Iowa State in Civil Engineering. From 1987 through 2004 he was the Director of the Del E. Webb School of Construction. During that time he transformed the construction program from a small regional program to one of national prominence. Prior to joining ASU Bill served a long and distinguished career in the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Dr. Badger was the “The Engineer” for the United States Military Academy from 1983-85, supervising the planning, engineering, construction, and maintenance of West Point.
As the Saint Paul District Engineer (1979-82), Colonel Badger was the contracting officer for the $40,000,000 Lock and Dam Number One restoration.
Prior to this he served Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and China in addition to several stateside tours.
Bill is a Registered Professional Engineer, State of Alabama.
His professional memberships include:
Member of the National Academy of Construction (2000-present)
