Dr. Mark A. Tumeo, dean of the University of North Florida College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, was recently elected an American Society of Civil Engineering Fellow.








“I am deeply humbled and honored by the vote of my colleagues in the American Society of Engineers to elect me to the rank of Fellow,” Tumeo shared. “There are few accolades more meaningful than those of your peers. This is an important recognition, not only for me personally, but also for UNF and the Jacksonville engineering community.” 








            Tumeo, an Atlantic Beach resident, was elected a Fellow in late May by the ASCE leadership. He began his professional engineering career in 1984, founding his own firm, which he still owns and operates to date. Additionally, he has worked throughout the United States and Europe as a chief project engineer, design engineer, research scientist and staff engineer.








            He began his post-graduate academic career at the University of California, Davis in 1984, researching and teaching at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Cleveland State University before assuming his role as dean of CCEC at UNF in 2011.  








The nationally recognized designation requires bearers to have had responsible charge for a minimum of 10 years of important industrial, business, construction, educational, editorial, research or engineering society activity, requiring the knowledge and background gained from engineering training and experience. Additionally, Fellows must be nominated by leadership within the ASCE.








Founded in 1852, the ASCE represents more than 145,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America's oldest national engineering society. It’s mission is to provide essential value to members and partners, advance civil engineering and serve the public good.








The mission of the CCEC is to provide students with the highest quality education and professional experiences, to achieve excellence in teaching, scholarship and service, and to continually enhance programs through interactions with professional constituents in the community.






UNF, a nationally ranked university located on an environmentally beautiful campus, offers students who are dedicated to enriching the lives of others the opportunity to build their own futures through a well-rounded education.
