Andrew Guswa is a civil and environmental engineer with a particular focus on environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology, and his research involves modeling the movement of water through the natural environment, with particular attention to flow beneath the ground surface. In 1994, Guswa graduated from Princeton University with a B.S.E. from the Department of Civil Engineering and Operations Research. He received his M.S.C.E. from Stanford University in 1995, and stayed to pursue a Ph.D. in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

At Smith, Guswa teaches courses in fluid mechanics, hydrology, water resources and structural engineering. He views his teaching as an opportunity to pass on his enthusiasm for and knowledge of the built and natural environment. Given today's rapidly changing society, he believes a successful engineering graduate will have a deep understanding of engineering fundamentals along with the skills necessary to evaluate, assimilate, reapply and communicate new concepts and information.
