Tuning in to Lou Geschwindner
Posted by Tasha Weiss on March 10, 2011 at 10:11 AM.

The most recent installment of AISC’s free podcast series, Steel Profiles, features a 32-minute interview with well-respected educator and lecturer Louis F. Geschwindner, Ph.D., P.E. Geschwindner recently retired after serving for nearly 40 years as a faculty member in the Architectural Engineering Department at the Pennsylvania State University, and he also served the last nine years as AISC’s vice president of engineering and research. Over the years he’s helped continue the education of more than 15,000 practicing professionals. In recognition of his many contributions to the industry and his life-long love of education, AISC has renamed its annual seminar series’ in his honor.

This fourth monthly Steel Profiles podcast gets up close and personal with Geschwindner as he talks not only about his tenure at Penn State and AISC, but also his outrageous tie collection and how he maintains his signature mustache.
