As a student at the University of Kentucky, Tyler Mize built electrical control systems for a small manufacturing company, which fueled an interest in electrical engineering. During his senior year, he served as an intern with Mason & Hanger, where he currently serves as an electrical engineer.

“In the electrical design industry, every project is different, and the only constant is change,” says Mize, a licensed professional engineer in Kentucky and Tennessee. “This makes for a very exciting and challenging career, which I find very rewarding.”

Mize leads a team of five members, ranging from engineers to design professionals to interns. He serves as the discipline lead for projects in his company’s military and international markets. As the engineer of record for the electrical and telecommunications systems for secure, mission-driven facilities, he is responsible for the plans, specifications, and engineering calculations.

Currently, he is serving as the engineer of record on several projects around the globe in the International Programs market. Stateside, he serves as the engineer of record for multiple projects for the Army and Air Force. In his role, he says technology is critical for designing electrical and telecommunications systems. He helps to vet and implement new modeling and calculation technology for the electrical department.

“Mason & Hanger was an early adopter of BIM and CIM modeling for our clients, and we seek to continually improve our expertise in these areas,” he says.

In five to 10 years, he plans to continue to train and mentor other electrical engineers and designers at Mason & Hanger.

“I plan to still be contributing to the success of others at Mason & Hanger, fostering the next generation of innovation through individual growth and an increased deliverable quality to our clients,” he says.
