Fehr Graham, a leading Midwest engineering and environmental firm, announced today that Cody Buelt passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam. He works in Fehr Graham's Cedar Rapids office.
Becoming a Professional Engineer has always been a personal goal and an important step in Buelt's professional career.
"Cody is one of our young, outstanding engineers at Fehr Graham, and this is a great accomplishment," said Nate Kass, a Professional Engineer and one of the firm's eight owners. "He pays attention to detail and works with senior engineers to solve complex problems. I'm proud of his dedication and talent. His future is bright at Fehr Graham."
Becoming a licensed professional isn't necessary for all engineering jobs, but it is the highest standard of achievement in the profession. In addition to the exam, engineers must have a four-year college degree, have at least four years of relevant work experience and apply for licensure by the state.
Buelt, who lives in Marion, joined Fehr Graham in 2017 and has been part of many significant projects, including improvements at Cubby Park in West Branch.
He is a 2016 graduate of Iowa State University where he earned his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. He also has certifications from the American Public Works Association, Underground Utility Construction Inspector School, Iowa Department of Transportation Aggregate 1, Hot Mix Asphalt Sampling, Portland Cement Concrete 1. He is also a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
