Troy graduated in December 2012 with a BS in Civil Engineering and has since been working as a staff engineer for Patrick Engineering. “Growing up, some of my fondest memories were traveling to Pennsylvania to see the famous Horseshoe curve. Like a lot of kids, I wasn’t really aware of all the possibilities in the rail industry. That is until I came to Michigan Tech. I joined REAC and attended various events as well as AREMA conferences. The summer before my final semester, I had
an internship with Norfolk Southern in Toledo in the Maintenance of Way Group. It was an amazing experience to see what takes place behind the scenes to make sure that the trains are always running.
At Patrick, I have been involved in multiple projects varying in size and scope. I have helped with the design of some large intermodal facilities, smaller industrial spur tracks and have recently started work on my own project for an industrial park and loop track in Wyoming. It has been a great experience thus far and I’m excited to continue learning.”
