Jay Thota

Design Engineer

Jay came to structural engineering through his high school’s Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Mentoring (ACE) program where he had the opportunity to engage with architects and engineers and enjoy interesting site visits. With a love for problem solving, collaboration and the joy of creation, Jay went on to pursue engineering and earned his degree from the University of Tennessee. Outside of work, Jay enjoys visiting National Parks, is an avid runner, and plays the violin.
“Structural engineering is so exciting because you have the opportunity to create structures that have a profound influence on the built environment and on the generations of people who use them.”
