University President to Assist Gulf Spill Investigation
UT Dallas News Center
The National Academy of Engineering and the National Research Council have appointed UT Dallas President David E. Daniel to a committee investigating the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
The president, who is a member of the Academy, will be part of a group charged with conducting a technical analysis of the accident’s causes and recommending measures to prevent similar disasters in the future.
 
Daniel’s work has been recognized by the American Society of Civil Engineers, which awarded him its highest honor for papers published in its journals (the Norman Medal), and on two separate occasions awarded him its second-highest honor, the Croes Medal. In 2005 through 2008, Daniel served as Chair of the External Review Panel of the American Society of Civil Engineers, which reviewed the facts surrounding the performance of New Orleans’ levees during Hurricane Katrina.

Civil Engineering Society Honors UT Dallas President with Lifetime Achievement Award in Education
UT Dallas News Center
University of Texas at Dallas President David E. Daniel has been awarded the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2010 Outstanding Projects and Leaders (OPAL) award for lifetime achievement in engineering education.
 
ASCE presented the award at the annual OPAL gala on March 25 in Washington, D.C. ASCE represents more than 144,000 civil engineers worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society.
 
OPAL awards recognize individuals for “life-long contributions, accomplishments and achievements that have made significant differences” in five areas of civil engineering: construction, design, education, government and management.
