After working as an intern for HR Green, Inc. in the summer of 2012, Chad Kohlhoff graduated in December 2012 with a BS in Civil Engineering. He was hired by HR Green upon graduation and since August, 2013, Chad has been working for Engineered Rail Solutions, LLC (ERS) as a Staff Engineer. “My interest in railroad engineering was sparked by getting involved in the RTP and REAC at Michigan Tech. Student trips and hands-on activities on campus provided valuable learning experiences about the railroad industry outside of the classroom, including  networking opportunities that led to my internship and full time job. 

As a Staff Engineer, I combine geometric design principles with railroad operation practices to develop an efficient design for industrial rail facilities. I develop operational models to validate the design and streamline the approval processes. I am actively involved in project management tasks to ensure that the projects are delivered at high quality, on schedule, and within the project budget.”
