Chris A. GWaltney



I have recently retired from the Civil & Environmental Engineering faculty at Lipscomb University in Nashville Tennessee and moved to County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. My primary area of interest is in geotechnical engineering and my consulting was focused on earth dams.  Although my career spanned nearly 30 years as a faculty member, I also worked for several years for the US Army Corps of Engineers and consulted with the Nashville Office of Stantec.  I have been licensed as a professional engineer in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee; and I’m currently an emeritus member of the Indiana State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers. 

I have served ASCE in various capacities including all offices in the SW Branch of the Indiana Section, Treasurer of the Indiana Section, and President of the Nashville Branch of the Tennessee Section.  I am most proud of serving as the Faculty Advisor for the award winning Student Chapters of the University of Evansville in Indiana and the Lipscomb University in Nashville.  I am happy to serve the ASCE UK Group and I am looking forward to helping UK universities in forming student chapters.
