Robert Lee Cunningham, Jr., PE, Professional Engineer at Cunningham Engineers, Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in infrastructure.
Mr. Cunningham went to college to study pre-medicine. He thought that would be a good fit because he likes mathematics and science. He ended up finding out while working in a hospital that he was not cut out for medicine because of his empathy for the patients. Realizing he no longer wanted to become a doctor, he switched over to engineering because of his mathematics and science skills. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Walla Walla University in 1962. Upon completion of his degree, he became a professional engineer and a registered engineer in mechanical and civil engineering.
Mr. Cunningham took great pride in the work he created and making sure that it was designed correctly. Another highlight was that there was a great demand for someone like him in the heavy industry. That was a real blessing and kept him busy for a long time. He began his career in 1966 at the Navy Yard in Birmingham Washington, where he remained for three years. In 1969, he worked with The Minuteman Missile Program at Boeing Aircraft for a year. The following six months he spent as an engineer in the heavy industry in Wyoming. From 1970 to 1973, he was a consultant for Alpha Engineers and the following year he was an engineer at Allied Chemical. From 1974 to 1975, he was an engineer and a consultant in the fertilizer industry a Decker Industries. Since 1975, he has been a professional engineer, owner, founder and consultant for Cunningham Engineers, Inc.
