Staff Engineer – MonroviaTim Kwan headshot.

Where did you attend college, and what did you study?

I attended Pasadena City College right after high school, where I did my general education and support courses. After two years, I transferred out and was accepted into Cal Poly Pomona! There, I did my undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering. I recently received my official graduation notice and my Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering!

What drew you to work for Civiltec? What do you like best about working at Civiltec thus far?

What drew me to Civiltec was the location and environment. I live relatively close to Monrovia. The office environment is where I can always learn and better myself. The best part about working at Civiltec is the friends that I’ve made working with one another. Everybody has always been super friendly to me, making me feel like a part of the team.

What are some of your favorite types of projects to work on? What are you most excited to tackle?

Some of the projects that I enjoyed working on involved ArcGIS and InfoWater. Over the past year, I’ve been learning how to use ArcGIS, and it always amazes me how much you can do with this program. Whether I’m doing water modeling or even running a test, it’s always fun!

When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your time?

If I’m not spending time with my girlfriend or watching a show, I’m exercising or playing tennis. I’ve recently started running to keep myself healthy.

What is a hobby, interest or skill you have that other employees might not know about?

I have a big interest in foreign media. I am really into watching Korean and Japanese Dramas, variety shows, and listening to their music.
