All About Yung

Thank you for your interest in my firm!  My name is Yung Koprowski, and I am the owner and entrepreneur behind Y2K Engineering.  I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself: 
 
I grew up in Queen Creek, just outside of the Phoenix area.  My father was an electrical engineer, constantly gutting and improving our home with his own designs.  As such, I took an early interest in design and construction. 
 
Throughout my college career - and into my first several years as a professional- I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, building affordable housing for the working poor. Along the way, I became a house leader and discovered my passion for engineering. 
 
I studied at Arizona State University; while studying, I had the opportunity to intern with two local engineering firms, and obtained my engineer-in-training certification.  Subsequently, I graduated in January 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. 

Notably, my work has included the Phoenix Bicycle Master Plan (which prioritized and identified $52 million in infrastructure improvements), the 2015 Maricopa Association of Governments Strategic Transportation Safety Plan (which identifies safety needs to reduce fatalities and serious injuries in the Phoenix area), systems engineering for adaptive traffic-signal technology at 51 intersections along a 15-mile segment of Bell Road, and design of sensors to collect arterial-road travel time in the cities of Mesa, Gilbert, and Tempe. 
 
I am a past president of the Intelligent Transportation Society of Arizona and the American Society of Highway Engineers – Phoenix Sonoran Section, and currently serve on the board of the Arizona Institute of Transportation Engineers. ASCE recognized me as one of the 2016 New Faces of Civil Engineering. 

Once again, thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about myself, and I look forward to the opportunity to discuss what Y2K Engineering can do for you!
