A Celebration of Bob Tillman’s 39 Years of Dedication to Students

Robert Tillman, who has served the Northeastern community for 39 years, retired in June 2015.  Over the years, Tillman helped nearly five-thousand students launch career trajectories, a truly remarkable and distinctive achievement in engineering education.  He was instrumental in the development of cooperative education in the civil engineering department, and in positioning the civil engineering program as one of the premier cooperative education-based programs in the country.

Tillman’s dedication and commitment to the students has helped forge long-lasting relations with companies worldwide and has created countless opportunities for our students. Congratulations to Bob Tillman for his outstanding career as a faculty colleague and as an educator, mentor, and role model to so many grateful students.
