Staff Spotlight – Mike Erdtmann, P.E.
Engineer in Transportation Group


1. What’s the most rewarding thing about what you do?
Having a tangible end product to hang your hat on. After all the problem solving and hard work that goes into the detailed design process, nothing is more satisfying than being able to drive down that corridor knowing how it came to fruition, and seeing how it affects everyday lives within the community.

2. Why did you choose this profession?
I have always had an interest in building and construction, but also had a knack for design. Civil Engineering seemed like the best way to pursue those traits.

3. People don’t know?
I was a Civil War buff growing up, and still have a little bit of it in me… I’ve been to Gettysburg five different times.

4. Extracurricular activities?
I revel in the endless entertainment that my two young daughters provide. I really don’t know what I did with all the extra time I had before kids, but I must have been pretty bored. Other than that I’m a huge Mizzou fan, and a sports fanatic in general. I enjoy rec sports, golfing, running, reading, getting together with friends and family, and starting (sometimes finishing) new renovation projects at home.

5. What is top on your bucket list?  
Road tripping to Augusta National to watch the Sunday round of the Masters in person… Which I will be doing this April, check!

6. You in a nutshell?
The fact that Halloween is still my favorite holiday pretty much sums it up.
