The Underground Construction Technology Association (UCTA) and Underground Construction magazine will honor Dr. Tom Iseley, professor of civil engineering and construction engineering technology and director of the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech, as the 2016 UCTA MVP (Most Valuable Professional).

Iseley will receive the honor for his contributions to the underground infrastructure industry during UCTA’s MVP ceremony at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. on February 3.

Dr. Hisham Hegab, dean of the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech, said that Iseley’s selection as MVP is indicative of the innovation and expertise that Iseley brings to the field of trenchless technology.

“Dr. Iseley isn’t just an MVP for underground construction technology,” Hegab said. “He is an MVP for Louisiana Tech’s College of Engineering and Science, and we are fortunate to have him on our team. With extensive experience in the industry, he has very quickly brought renewed interest and enthusiasm to our Trenchless Technology Center, and I am excited about many of the new initiatives he is developing.”

“I am overwhelmed with gratitude that the Underground Construction Technology Association (UCTA) and Underground Construction magazine have selected me for UCTA’s Most Valuable Professional for my contributions to the underground infrastructure industry,” Iseley said of the award. “It is such an honor to realize that my peers have recognized my contributions to have this level of significance. My father and grandfather were water and sewer pipeline contractors; so, it is even more meaningful to know that this recognition is for contributions made to the underground construction industry.”

Iseley was the inaugural winner of Trenchless Technology’s Person of the Year award in 1993 and was the North American Society for Trenchless Technology Chairman’s Award winner in 2006. He has also been selected as a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for his eminence in engineering.
