John H. Tan ’87 M. Eng. ’89

John H. Tan ’87 M. Eng. ’89 has mentored more than 100 Stevens students in their pursuit to become engineers. A frequent advisor to senior design projects and an enthusiastic cooperative education recruiter, Mr. Tan has worked to give Stevens students exposure to the real world of professional engineering since 1999. As a representative of The Louis Berger Group, his former employer, he has provided Stevens students with access to career-shaping professional development opportunities. His help was instrumental in establishing the relationship between Stevens and the Berger Group, which facilitated not only mentoring, but funding to support the senior design projects as well.

He mentors because he likes to give back to the next generation of engineers and enjoys providing real-world experience in the engineering field.

In his career, Mr. Tan has been involved with several premier transportation projects including the award-winning Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge Widening and Rehabilitation Project , Preliminary Engineering and Section 4 Final Design of the New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 6 to 9 Widening Program and the Secaucus Interchange Ramp Viaduct over NJ Transit Main Line and wetlands. His experience includes management, design and project quality assurance for NJ Department of Transportation, NJ Turnpike Authority, the Port Authority of NY and NJ and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, among others.

After 25 years with the Berger Group, Mr. Tan accepted an opportunity with Naik Consulting Group PC in April 2014, joining the group as vice president and director of structural design services. There, he works to support the firm’s overall growth opportunities through strategic planning, supervision, QA/QC and client liaison activities. He is continuing his efforts to mentor Stevens students at the Naik Group.
