An Engineer’s Dream Job

When I was a kid, I knew that I was destined to be a structural engineer.  I was the one kid on my block with the largest Lego set who enjoyed building structures out of them and determining best ways to construct them. In high school, during one of my physics classes, the teacher taught us that a truss is an assembly of beams that creates a strong rigid structure. - Robert Zygmunt

Climate change – material selection matters

As a specification writer and architect, I spend a good deal of my time reviewing and learning more about new and existing building materials. But my real passion is finding materials that support and push sustainable design forward. I use my expertise and passion to help project teams, make their projects greener and ultimately combat climate change. - Ross Spiegel
