Dr. David Manry, associate professor of construction, and holder of the Endowed Professorship in Electrical / Mechanical in the School of Construction Management at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, has been elevated to Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).


According to the IEEE, senior member is the highest professional grade of the IEEE for which a member may apply. It requires experience, and reflects professional accomplishment and maturity. Only seven percent of the organization’s 431,000 members have achieved this level.

“Dr. Manry’s recognition as a Senior Member of IEEE is a significant professional accomplishment,” said Dr. Ron Berry, dean of the College of Business and Social Sciences.

“We are proud of Dr. Manry for his efforts and professional activities in electrical engineering, and appreciate his dedication to being one of the best in his field.”

Manry has worked as a mechanical engineer in several chemical plants and refineries on the Gulf Coast. He also has been employed as both a consulting professional engineer and a computer programmer.


In the construction community, Manry is involved in the prevention of damage to underground utilities and facilities as a member of both the Ouachita Joint Utility Council and the Caddo-Bossier Utility Coordination Council.

Manry joined the ULM faculty in 2000.
