John DeWolf, Ph.D., is a professor emeritus of Civil & Environmental Engineering. During his 35 years at UConn, John educated hundreds of civil engineers and received numerous awards for his instructional excellence, including being named a University Teaching Fellow in 2006. Steel Design was among his primary course offerings. His integration of writing assignments into senior-level classes resulted in his receipt of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Educator Career Enhancement Award. A course favorite was his “Cathedrals - Engineering and Construction" First-Year Experience course. John co-authored several editions, with F.P. Beer and E.R. Johnston, of the widely acclaimed Mechanics of Materials. With David Mazurek, he has written Statics and Mechanics of Materials, based on the Beer/Johnston series. Since 1983, he has been involved in bridge monitoring, and he is lead investigator on a long-term research project involving the installation of permanent monitoring systems on a network of Connecticut bridges.
