LAN Associates congratulates Mechanical Engineer, Mina Botros on completing the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam and receiving his Professional Engineering license.

“We congratulate Mina on becoming a newly licensed Professional Engineer,” said Tom Wighard, Vice President and head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at LAN. “Since joining LAN, Mina has always shown his ambition and enthusiasm through both his work and studies. This accomplishment serves as another testament to his character, and we are lucky to have him as a part of our team.”

Mina graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with both a Bachelor and Master’s in mechanical engineering.  After school, Mina worked as a mechanical designer while he studied to pass his Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. This granted him the title of Engineer-In-Training (EIT), and immediately prompted him to take a celebratory trip to Las Vegas.  Since joining LAN in 2016, Mina has worked on a multitude of mechanical engineering projects, including the Christian Health Care Center and a large project at SUNY College.

Mina often travels for both work and fun, he is big fan of the Beatles, and you can barely see the paint on his office walls due to all the Liverpool Football Club paraphernalia he has hanging up. In 2019, He passed the Principles of Engineering Exam and in March 2020 he received his official Professional Engineers license.

“I am so happy to have passed my test and complete the last step to becoming a licensed engineer. Becoming an engineer has always been a dream of mine,” said Mina Botros, PE. “I am thankful for all of my friends, colleagues, professors, and family members who helped me to this point, and I am excited for what comes next!”

Becoming a licensed professional engineer is a rigorous process. An aspiring engineer must earn a four-year engineering degree, pass the FE exam to become an EIT and then pass the Practice of Engineering (PE) exam. Once licensed, engineers must maintain their credentials by completing annual continuing education courses and attending seminars.

With this achievement, Mina will now be the 15th Professional Engineer at LAN. Mina’s work will continue in the Mechanical Engineering Department, where he will use his license to further grow the department and his experience.
