Before retiring, civil engineering graduate John Mathes headed his own multidisciplinary engineering business that specialized in high-profile contamination projects. In the early 1990s, Mathes was a part of a team that formed Project 2000 to unite the civil engineering department and its alumni in their efforts to enhance the quality of the program. As a result, civil engineering expanded to become the department of civil, architectural and environmental engineering.
Mathes earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from S&T in 1967 and 1968, respectively.
