Colorado State University College of Engineering Honors CH2M HILL’s Terry Ruhl with Distinguished Alumni Award

Colorado State University (CSU) is honoring CH2M HILL’s Transportation Market President Terry Ruhl, P.E., F. ASCE, as the 2014 College of Engineering Distinguished Alumni Award recipient. The CSU Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Awards program recognizes its alumni and friends who have distinguished themselves professionally, brought honor to the University and have made significant contributions of time and/or philanthropy to the University or their community.

“It means a great deal to be honored by my alma mater and the College of Engineering,” stated Ruhl. “I credit my time at CSU as being transformational, laying much of the foundation for my profession and my life. I have no doubt my ongoing relationship with the University will continue throughout the remainder of my career and into retirement.”

Ruhl, a recognized leader in the field of transportation infrastructure development, has 26 years of industry experience. As president of CH2M HILL’s global Transportation Market, he leads a more than $1-billion business spanning the aviation, bridges, highways, ports, public transportation and rail sectors.

Ruhl’s involvement with CSU is multi-faceted. He has served on the College of Engineering Advisory Board and supported the development of the signature Scott Bioengineering research and academic building. In 2012, Ruhl offered commencement speech advice to the College of Engineering graduates, sharing key lessons learned over the span of his career.

In addition to being an avid supporter of CSU’s athletic programs, Ruhl has been instrumental in developing a partnership between CSU and CH2M HILL to establish a presence for the University in Denver’s South Metro region. He also is working with the College of Engineering to enhance undergraduate programs in the fields of transportation and infrastructure development, and the business practices of engineering consultancy.

Ruhl is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE Fellow), the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Transportation Research Board. He was recently appointed to the University of Denver’s Intermodal Transportation Institute Board of Directors, and previously served as the Board of Directors Chair for the Airport Consultants Council.  Ruhl has written many articles on airport planning and engineering, as well as overall transportation and business management issues. He and his wife, Leslie, have three children — Logan, Tanner and Jordan, two of whom are proud to call CSU home.

Ruhl will be officially recognized at the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner on Thursday, October 16, as CSU celebrates its Homecoming and Family Weekend.
