Rob Twardock, P.E.     


My name is Rob Twardock. I am a faculty member at the College of Lake County, where I've been teaching  for over 11 years.  I currently serves as the Department Chair for Engineering, Construction Management Technology, and Civil & Environmental Technology.  I  am a Civil Engineer by training, having received by B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. I worked for 10 years as a practicing engineer before starting to teach at the community college level. I started teaching at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, OR, before coming to CLC in August 2000. 

In my role as Department Chair, I advise students who are thinking of getting into Engineering, CMT, or Civil Technology.  If you or someone you know are interested in one of these programs, please feel free to contact me to set up an appointment so we can discuss your needs and how CLC can help you out. I can be reached by email at or phone at 847-543-2903.  My office is T-113, in the T-Wing of CLC's Grayslake campus.   Many students find the Engineering Transfer Guide useful to learn about transfer guidelines with the area 4-year schools.  

I am also the Principal Investigator for the National Science Foundation Scholarship program, which awards scholarships to low income, academically talented Engineering and Computer Science students. You can learn more
