Loughmiller appointed to distinguished professorship
Katie Loughmiller, Kansas State University assistant professor of architectural engineering and construction science, has been named to the Martin K. Eby distinguished professorship.
Created by Martin K. Eby Jr., Charles Eby and Jim Grier, the award is designated for recruiting and retaining the highest quality faculty in the department of architectural engineering and construction science. Martin Eby was a 1929 graduate of K-State in civil engineering.
Loughmiller has both a bachelor's and master's degree in construction science and management from Kansas State University and North Dakota State University, respectively. She joined the College of Engineering faculty in 2013 and her teaching areas include construction scheduling, finance and operations.
The commercial team coach for an Associated Schools of Construction student competition event, Loughmiller is also faculty adviser for the Sigma Lambda Chi construction honorary society. She serves on multiple departmental, college and university committees, and in 2017 was recognized with the Associated Schools of Construction Excellence in Teaching Award.
"Katie Loughmiller is a strong choice for the Eby professorship," said Ray Buyle, department head for architectural engineering and construction science. "Her professionalism, commitment to teaching and expertise in the field of construction are all assets we value in our faculty members."
