Dr. Oyler served for 25 years as a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering before his retirement in 2018. He began his teaching career after 40 years in industry, where he worked for Dravo Corporation, Daxus Corporation,
and his own consulting firm, Oyler Consulting Services.
During his Pitt tenure, he taught Statics, Mechanics of Materials, Materials of Construction, and Senior Design Projects. His hope is that the Oyler Fellowship will help jump-start students’ careers in the field in which he dedicated more than
65 years of service.
