Jerry Rogers, associate professor of civil engineering with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering, has been named to two national-level engineering history committees.

For the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Annual National Conference in Panama City, Panama in 2014, Rogers will sit on the History and Heritage Committee’s (HHC) Subcommittee on the Panama Canal Centennial History (1914-2014).

Rogers will also serve on the American Water Resources Association (AWRA) 50th Anniversary Committee to plan the anniversary activities for the AWRA Conference in Washington, D.C., set for November 2014.

Rogers has long been active in engineering history initiatives. He is a corresponding member and past chairman of the ASCE’s HHC and received the 2011 ASCE National History and Heritage Award and Honorarium. He was also National President of AWRA during the group’s 25th Annual Conference in Tampa, Fla., in 1989.
