Andrew joined the Hawkins & Associates team in June of 2014 after a recent graduation. He attended California State University Fresno and obtained a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering in spring of 2014. During his schooling he chose to focus his studies on water resources, in particular he studied surface water treatment processes. This decision was made because living in the California central valley can really give someone an unique perspective on the importance of the future of water resources. Pervious to university life he worked for a couple of other civil engineering firms and gained 10 years of job experience. He learned how to use AutoCAD very well and learned enough about the business to decide that this was the career that he wanted for himself, these skills and job knowledge would later prove to be very helpful to college life because his previous knowledge gave him a head start on many topics.
Working for Hawkins & Associates did not end his studies. Andrew was determined to obtain his professional license and prepared for the exams while working on his professional career at the same time. Hawkins & Associates proved to be a very supportive environment to prepare for his exam and he took and passed his professional licensing exam in the spring of 2015.
