Mike Heuer (Vice President), recently spoke at the University of Minnesota’s fall graduation ceremony for the College of Civil, Environmental, and Geo-Engineering (CEGE). As a former graduate of the CEGE program, and a long standing relationship with the university, Mike was invited to share his experiences as an engineer over the course of his 40-year career with the graduating class.
Mike offered practical advice to the graduates that they could leverage in their careers as engineers, including the importance of finding mentors, developing professional relationships, becoming a licensed engineer, being a promoter for the industry, and giving back to the community.
“One of the responsibilities of each generation of engineers is to nurture and help the next generation of engineers to learn, develop and succeed in their effort to make the world a better place. Now, as you depart from this institution on your journey, it is your time to embrace this long-term responsibility.”
Mike has worked on various university projects over the years as an engineer with Braun Intertec, including: Walter Library, Northrop Auditorium, Physics and Nanotechnology Building, and the Tate Laboratory of Physics. Congratulations to the graduating class of 2016.
