Senior Engineer

I was born and raised in Mexico and I always liked math and science. My parents and teachers saw that and encourage me to consider a career in Engineering. Because of good grades and hard work I was able attend university.

Material Development Engineer

I grew up on a farm in mid-Missouri. I loved being outside and helping my dad fix equipment but I also loved baking and creating new recipes. When I took a chemistry class, I really enjoyed learning about what makes up all the different materials in the world–it was like making recipes to create new things.

Professor and Associate Dean

I am a question asker, problem solver, dog lover, learner, traveler, weight lifter, and adventurer. My wife and I have lived in Denver for 14 years, where I work at the University of Colorado Denver as a Professor. Iā€™m from a small town in Oklahoma.

Director Processing

We need special materials to make the things we use in our lives every day. From cell phones, to jewelry to treating cancer, gold is one of these important materials. I started learning about gold in the country of my birth: South Africa, where I studied to become a chemical engineer.

Sr. Director of Quality

I grew up in a small farming community in Wyoming. I was the third of four kids, raised by a single mother. We were very poor. This forced me to be creative about how I completed projects in school. I used materials I found around my house and in the alley.

Central Region Bridge Leader

I grew up near Philadelphia, PA; went to college at Lehigh University where I earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. Then I went to Purdue University to get a master’s degree in structural engineering.

Director Enterprise Architecture

I grew up in Texas but never owned a horse or a cowboy hat. I enjoyed camping and the outdoors which lead me as an adult to Colorado. I am a father of 4 children (and a dog named Taco).

President and CEO

The oldest of four children, Jill Tietjen grew up in Hampton, Virginia. She earned a BS in applied mathematics (minor in electrical engineering) from the University of Virginia and her masters in business administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She spent more than 40 years in the electric utility industry where she served as an expert witness and helped plan new power plants

Developer Educator

I’ve been writing code for most of my life and my favorite way to learn new tech things is to design and develop a game that will require that new-to-me tech knowledge to complete. I’m self taught with technology and studied World history in school because I find humans way more confusing than technology, and it helped a lot!
