Joseph D. Sosa, a Project Engineer in the Land Development Department, joined R. G. Miller Engineers in June of 2017 with more than four years of experience working for both private firms and government agencies. A Certified Floodplain Manager, he specializes in hydrologic and hydraulic studies, roadway drainage design and FEMA Letter of Map Changes (LOMC).
Joseph is a native of Buda, Texas, a little town just south of Austin. He came to Houston to work after graduating from Texas Tech University with a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering. He says he always knew that with his interest in math and science he was going to be an engineer of some sort, and that clarified for him when he went to college.
He likes how his work gives him an opportunity to have a say in how new developments are built to avoid flooding, and he says it’s fulfilling to see a development built with the knowledge that what he did in the pre-planning stage protected the people living there, as well as the people living downstream.
