P&N Engineer, Ryan Russell, earns PE License

June 6, 2019

Prein&Newhof is proud to announce that Ryan Russell recently earned his Professional Engineer (PE) License in the State of Michigan.

To earn the PE License in the State of Michigan, one must complete a four–year college degree, pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, work under a Professional Engineer for at least four years (three years for those with a graduate degree), and pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam. This extensive process ensures competency in the profession.

In 2010 Ryan graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. After graduation he did survey work for the Michigan Department Of Transportation (MDOT) and was employed by the City of Kalamazoo before joining Prein&Newhof in 2017. Ryan’s first assignment at P&N was to help create water asset management plans for numerous communities across the state. Now he is designing non–motorized paths and working to replace lead water service lines throughout the City of Kalamazoo. He also works on site development projects that involve designing pavement application, grading and drainage, storm sewer, water main, and sanitary sewer. As an FAA licensed unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) pilot, Ryan operates Prein&Newhof’s drone out of our Kalamazoo office. He is also an active member of the American Water Works Association.

At Prein&Newhof, it is one of our values to build expertise in the fields we serve. We take pride in building a team of professionals who hold themselves to the highest standard. We congratulate Ryan on this achievement.
