43: Architectural and Structural Engineer – Jacob Bolda

Jacob Bolda earned an Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering and a Masters of Engineering in Structural Engineering from The Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and is currently working at CSD in Milwaukee, WI.

Architectural Engineering will cover all the pieces that go into actually building the building and Civil Engineers tend to do more of the building site preparation. Structural engineering, at it’s core, revolves around making sure the building stays up.

To get through college, Jacob says you need to figure out during high school how you learn and also make sure to nurture your network and give value to those around you without expecting anything in return.

Jacob is also involved with “The AEC Collective”. The AEC Collective is a community for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction fields.

Jacob recommends Asana for a to-do list and recommends the book “Never Split the Difference” by Chris Voss.
