Michael K. Stenstrom is a Distinguished Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.
His research and teaching are in the environmental engineering area with emphasis on biological treatment methods and applications of computing technologies to environmental engineering research. Over the past 15 years he has performed research to characterize stormwater and minimize its impacts on the environment.
He has had several administrative positions in the school including Chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (8 years), Assistant Dean for Computing Resources and Associate Dean for Research and Facilities. He developed the SEASnet Computing Facility and in the 1980's chaired the task force that created the campus network.

50 Years of ASCE in Southern California! This is an interesting article written in 1964, descriibing the first 50 years of the Southern California chapter of ASCE. Three UCLA faculty (LMK Boelter, Martin Duke and Al Ingersoll), Jack McKee of CalTech, John Parkhurst of LACSD and others predict the future for issues such as water supply, energy production, sanitation, urban planning, engineering education and transportation (it's a big PDF file ~ 50 Mbytes).
