The Tsuan Hua Feng Distinguished Lecture Series was established to honor the memory of “Tom” Feng, who served on the faculty at the University of Massachusetts for 31 years. Professor Feng joined the faculty in 1951 after receiving his B.S. in Civil Engineering in 1949 M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin in 1946 and 1950. Dr. Feng was appointed as the first Sanitary Engineering professor at the University. In 1965 he established the Sanitary Engineering Program, which was later renamed the Environmental Engineering Program, and served as Director until 1974. Upon his retirement in 1982, Tom was appointed Emeritus Professor.
The EWRE Program sponsors weekly seminars that are open to the public. All are in room 303 of the ELab building starting at 2:30 PM (refreshments at 2:15), unless otherwise noted.
Hosted at UMass, the Northeast Graduate Student Water Symposium is an affordable conference opportunity in the greater Northeast region for graduate students in water-related disciplines. The symposium is centered on the theme of research advances in water engineering, resources, science, and policy. Organized and hosted primarily by graduate students, it is an opportunity for graduate student researchers to present current research, exchange ideas, network, and interact with industry and government professionals in the water sector.
