Madigan Smith

Design Engineer

Madigan earned her Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from George Fox University and her Master’s degree in Architectural Engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. A high school engineering course opened up the door to structural design studies, and Madigan saw an opportunity to pursue a career in an industry where she could see her work make a difference. Cal Poly provided a deeper look at the structural engineering profession, and she enjoyed digging deep into topics like performance-based design.
In her spare time, Madigan loves playing volleyball and softball as well as hiking and surfing.
 
“I knew I wanted to get into structural design. I was out on site doing Geotech work in New Zealand for a client. Strings marked the footprint of the client’s new home, and he was so excited to show me around. I saw how buildings could make someone feel, and I wanted to be a part of creating that experience.”
