WVU Tech’s Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences has earned a reputation for quality academics and for producing work-ready engineers. For Dr. Zeljko Torbica, that reputation was a major draw.
Dean Torbica (or Dean Z as he’s known by the campus community) came to the university after a storied career in construction engineering and academia. He started out as a structural engineer. He worked for a multi-national firm that was active in more than 70 countries. He spearheaded a popular online construction management program at Drexel University and published research in a number of professional journals.
