Victor Fulda, Engineering Technician, Chemical, Biochemical, and Environmental Engineering

Victor Fulda is a highly skilled engineering technician who goes above and beyond each day, providing valuable support to his department’s research and teaching missions. Colleagues say he loves a challenge and regularly draws on his professional expertise to find or invent efficiencies. If Fulda lacks particular skills, he learns them as needed. He has spent time and creative energy finding less expensive sources for critical material, making his own equipment or repairs, and developing workarounds that have saved thousands of dollars. He also mentors students, helping them through challenges in the lab and providing advice based on his experience. Fulda received his B.S.from Towson University.
