Steven Fenves Faculty Office
After earning all three degrees in civil engineering from the University of Illinois – B.S. 1957, M.S. 1958 and Ph.D. 1961– Steven J. Fenves joined the faculty as an assistant professor. One of the early pioneers in the use of computers for structural engineering applications, Fenves taught courses in the design of engineering information systems and computer methods in civil engineering. He remained at Illinois until 1972, when he accepted a position as Professor and Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at Carnegie-Mellon University (CMU). He retired from active teaching in 1998 and is professor emeritus of CMU. Fenves is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. In 1969, Nathan Newmark wrote of Fenves: “Dr. Fenves is one of the ablest young men in the country in the field of computer aided instruction and engineering design."
