Oscar Flores is a valuable part of the RESPEC team. As an Engineer-in-Training with 5 years of experience, he specializes in water resources and public works and is a Certified Floodplain Manager in Texas.
Flores decided to become an engineer because of his math skills and strong interest in construction. “I’ve loved taking things apart and rebuilding them since I was a kid,” he said. For Flores, engineering “felt like the right field to go into.” Challenging projects are what he loves about his work as an engineer because “[it] feels good when you find a solution.”
His dad pushed him after high school with “words of wisdom,” including “If it was easy, anyone would do it” and “If there wasn’t a problem, you wouldn’t have a job to do.” Mr. Flores encourages engineering students to network because “sometimes knowing the right people is more important than knowing the right answer, especially after you graduate.”
