Matt Koukl Principal/Project Manager for Design & Commissioning of Mission Critical FacilitiesAffiliated Engineers, Inc.

I’ve been deeply into math and technology from a very young age, but I discovered that I wanted to study Electrical Engineering on a fishing trip with my dad and one of his pals. It’s a long drive to Toledo Bend Reservoir in East Texas and my dad’s pal talked about an integrated circuit design problem he was stuck on for most of it. The drive went by in a flash – I was hooked. Having a passion for computers, my later discovery that there are large facilities filled with them closed the deal.
