Q&A

What makes Burke different from other engineering firms?

My peers at Burke do find engineering exciting and share a passion for solving problems.  And the technical expertise available within the company leads to high quality engineering and solutions for our clients.

What is the most important takeaway for Burke clients?

Finding a solution to a problem is not the end of the story. That’s where communication and advocacy come into play. As engineers, we have the obligation to explain our data analysis and recommended solutions in clear language that can foster an environment for informed decisions to be made at the local level.

If you could be any natural feature, what would it be?

As a mechanical engineer and a mentor for a high school robotics team, I would choose to be a robot!  Robots are the ultimate challenge in "solving problems."  First, you must determine what functions the robot will need to perform and then design and program the robot.
