TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Auerbach Engineering Corporation is pleased to have Ryan Thomas join their team of civil engineers in the position of project engineer.

Thomas comes to AEC with four years of professional experience including design, drafting and land surveying. His experience covers grading, BMP design, erosion control, structural calculations, ADA accessibility, storm water management and utility design.

Thomas is a graduate of North Tahoe High School, and previously interned at AEC while earning his degree in civil engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, graduating magna cum laude.

He loves to travel, and spent two years traveling overland from Tierra del Fuego to California while learning about the Portuguese, Spanish and South American cultures. Ryan volunteered with Project RED (Rehabilitate, Educate, and Develop) in El Salvador, where he provided technical skills to young parents.

Thomas returned to North Lake Tahoe to work as a professional engineer where he enjoys skiing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, soccer, mountaineering, and photography. His other interests include food, cooking, culture and theology. He is the co-founder of the Tahoe-Truckee Chapter of Skiers, Snowboarders for Christ (SFC).

“I believe I’m a good fit for this firm because of the involvement in community, the building and shaping of this community,” said Thomas. “I also appreciate the collaboration, teamwork and the way our staff’s abilities compliment each other.”

Auerbach Engineering Corporation provides complete civil engineering and land surveying services to communities throughout the Lake Tahoe-Truckee region. Visit for more information.
