Dallas, TX, May 6, 2022 —
Please join us in congratulating Michael McLaren on being named Fellow by the ASCE.
In his 26-year career, Michael McLaren actively sought to gain civil and structural engineering knowledge. While progressing through his journey, Michael found it was essential to promote the profession through community engagement with students.
Early in his career, Michael McLaren worked to attain the technical ability to become licensed. Once licensed, he began to share his passion for the profession through mentoring K-12 students about engineering. He emphasized the importance of math and science classes, giving a better understanding of what a Civil engineer does by showing them real-life projects both in the classroom and by taking them on to job sites to see first hand.
Mr. McLaren worked on complex projects that helped enhance the community and make them safer during his professional career.
In 2011, Michael McLaren began teaching the Senior Capstone classes at Bradley University as an Associate Professor. These final classes were a year-long program designed to have students take what they learned in previous classes and apply them to design and document a building. This coursework allowed Mr. McLaren to fulfill his mission to bring students closer to the projects they would encounter in the professional world.
As the Chief Operating Officer at RLG, it is his responsibility to oversee the entire company's operations, including the Civil, Structural, and Survey departments. We have tools to train junior staff to improve their technical expertise to ensure quality, safe designs. We also train them on project management to have the business skills to build profitable and affordable projects for our clients.
