An engineer in the area has been awarded a “huge” statewide honor by his peers.

Brian Moynihan, a project engineer at Soil and Materials Engineers in Wyoming, was recently named the Young Engineer of the Year by the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers in Lansing, or MSPE

The award is given to a society member who has made contributions to the engineering profession and community early in their careers, said Brian Hannon, president, MSPE West Michigan chapter.

“Being selected as the state-level winner, as well as the chapter’s recipient . . . is a huge honor, and Brian is a worthy recipient,” Hannon said.

“His work ethic, professionalism and involvement in both MSPE and other organizations demonstrate the reasons why he was chosen. He has a bright future in the engineering industry.”

Moynihan, a licensed professional engineer in Michigan, is active in the industry and community: he's a member of the MSPE Board of Directors; member of the American Society of Civil Engineers; past president of the Grand Rapids chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute; and has served as a mentor for the Grand Rapids Public Schools Academy of Design & Construction and the Hope College chapter of Engineers Without Borders.

Moynihan holds a B.S. in civil engineering from Michigan Technological University.
