Program for Sustainable Pavement Engineering & Research (PROSPER) Director Halil Ceylan recently joined the ranks of just 3% of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) members by being elected an ASCE Fellow.

“I am very honored to receive this prestigious recognition,” Ceylan said.

Ceylan, who is also a professor in Iowa State University’s Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE), said he’s particularly honored to receive the recognition during the CCEE’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

ASCE Fellows have made celebrated contributions and developed creative solutions that change lives around the world. Fellow status must be attained by professional accomplishments via application and election by the Membership Application Review Committee (MARC).

There is no direct admission to the grade of Fellow. Minimum requirements are 10 years of responsible charge in the grade of Member and a P.E. or P.L.S. license.

Becoming a fellow includes many immediate and ongoing benefits, including receiving a framed certificate and an announcement in the Civil Engineering Source, ASCE’s news and information hub.

In addition to his PROSPER director and CCEE faculty roles, Ceylan serves as the Iowa State Site Director for the Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility, and Sustainability (PEGASAS), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) sponsored Center of Excellence on General Aviation.
