Engineering professor recognized with regional teaching award
Ray Buyle, associate professor of architectural engineering and construction science and Tointon Construction management chair at Kansas State University, has been named a recipient of the 2016 Associated Schools of Construction Regional Teaching Award.
The recognition is presented annually to untenured or tenure track faculty with two to six years of teaching experience at an association member school. This award recognizes the faculty member's contribution to construction education, excellence in teaching, service to the Associated Schools of Construction and dedication to the construction profession.
"Ray is an excellent educator and most deserving of this teaching award," said Ray Yunk, professor and department head of architectural engineering and construction science at K-State. "It's always a positive to have members of your faculty recognized by a professional organization such as this."
Buyle's areas of expertise are construction management and design-build project delivery. His current teaching assignments include construction operations, construction methods and equipment, current trends in construction, and computer applications in engineering and construction.
His memberships in professional organizations include the Associated General Contractors of Kansas, Design Build Institute of America and the American Society of Engineering Educators.
Buyle holds a bachelor's degree in construction science and management, and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction, both from K-State.
