Awards and Recognition


Michael Whittenburg, EI,
Passes PE Exam

Michael Whittenburg, EI, an Engineering Associate at McGill, recently passed his Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam. Among his many roles on the Water and Wastewater Team, Michael especially takes pride in investigating project issues.

“I enjoy doing the background research to find out the story behind the problems we solve,” Michael said. “Things that don’t seem relevant can end up being important to the final design, if you put all the pieces together.”
