Nicholas Kissoff, Ph.D., P.E.

about me

I’m an Associate Professor in the Engineering Technology Department.  I earned my three degrees from the University of Toledo (BSCE, MSCE and PH.D. in Engineering Science majoring in Transportation).  My graduate research centered on pavement skid resistance measurements and improvement strategies.  My teaching focus is in courses related to Civil Engineering which parallels my expertise in site and highway design, pavement construction and stormwater management.  I’m a registered professional engineer in Ohio and Michigan. 

 I maintain a close working relationship with all the CET students to be able to advise them effectively to meet their career goals.  I have also shepherded the CET program through four successful ABET accreditation visits and served as the coordinator for the department’s five programs’ accreditation preparations in 2017. 

Prior to returning to UT to teach in 1999, I was a project manager and lead design engineer for SSOE, Inc. in Toledo. While there I designed and managed roadway projects for ODOT and the Ohio Turnpike Commission, served as the lead site design engineer on the UT Glass Bowl renovation project and led many test track projects for Honda.  I also served as the traffic engineering expert while there. I try to bring my past professional experiences into the classroom and into my student advising everyday that I come to school.
