Jennifer Lowry, PE, Roseville’s City Engineer and Assistant Director of Public Works, has been elected vice-president of the Minnesota Society of Professional Engineers (MnSPE). MnSPE is a professional association representing licensed professional engineers in Minnesota and is the recognized voice and advocate of licensed Professional Engineers.

Lowry says she’s looking forward to her year as MnSPE vice president. “It’s going to be a great year,” she said. “We’re finally past Covid and we’re able to expand our programming and reach out to the greater community again.”

As City Engineer, Lowry directs engineering related to the design and construction of streets, pathways, and utilities throughout the city, including preparation of plans, supervision, and inspection.

In Minnesota, Licensed Professional Engineers are involved in the design and continuing safety of vital infrastructure ranging from our airports and highways to electrical plants and water treatment facilities. Professional Engineers are licensed by the state after they acquire extensive field experience and complete advanced education.  Their licenses must be renewed every two years.
