Congrats to Luke Beckermann, Matt Isley, and Adam Nies who received their professional engineer (PE) registrations for North Dakota after successfully completing the eight-hour Principles and Practices of Engineering exam. The exam measures the candidate’s academic and practical knowledge of technical engineering. Candidates are eligible to take the exam after meeting statutory requirements that include a minimum of four years of acceptable work experience.
Luke, Matt, and Adam (pictured below from left to right respectively) are all civil engineers working out of HEI’s Fargo office. Luke joined HEI in 2009, and both Matt and Adam joined a year later.
Luke’s duties at HEI range from designing bridges to various flood control structures. He has developed an expertise in concrete floodwall design throughout North Dakota and Minnesota and has worked extensively with self-consolidating concrete (SCC) on various floodwall projects, a new and emerging technique in the region.
Matt is responsible for structural designs ranging from concrete slab spans and concrete box culverts to large multi-span bridges over rivers and roadways. Matt also has completed numerous designs for various flood control structures, including concrete gatewells and lift stations.
Adam has been involved in various hydrologic and hydraulic modeling efforts throughout his career with HEI. His responsibilities include hydraulic impacts and analyses associated with bridge replacements; levee and floodwall construction; flood insurance studies; and large basinwide efforts for watershed districts and flood mitigation projects.
Congrats again Luke, Matt, and Adam!
