Kyle Busby Receives Professional Engineering License

Gibbs & Olson is pleased to announce that Kyle Busby has successfully passed the Professional Engineer’s exam, earning his Professional Engineering License in Washington State.

A graduate of the University of Washington, Kyle received his B.S. in civil engineering. His dedication and hard work make him a valued Gibbs & Olson team member.

Kyle’s experience includes developing construction plans, specifications, engineer’s estimates, 3D models and pipe networks for roadway construction and site civil projects. He assists with roadway, site, stormwater, sewer and water design projects as well as stormwater analysis.

To become a licensed PE, applicants must earn a four-year degree in engineering from an accredited engineering program, have at least four years of supervised experience under a professional engineer, pass two intensive competency exams and earn a license from their state’s licensure board.

Who would have thought that 16 years after Gibbs & Olson sponsored Kyle’s soccer team that he would be working for us? Congrats Kyle, we are happy to have you on our team!
