Kirk’s Story
Time Flies
Kirk finished his degree in mechanical engineering at Oakland University, then joined HED as an intern right after he graduated. Fast forward more than 20 years, and he’s still with the team, because he felt welcome from day one. Now his goal is to pass on the same warm mentorship he received as a newbie.

What Kirk Does
Mechanical Engineering
Kirk handles the mechanical technicalities by analyzing structural needs and calculating the systems needed for proper support. Because his job involves interior systems, he gets to partake in exciting renovations—like adding sustainable LEED features to a 100-year-old university building. Outside of that, he’s reminiscing about former Engineering Week activities that bring team-building adventures to the office.
