To do the best job I could

“To give the best I could to the students, to do the best job I could as a teacher and to have credibility, I realized I should have a PhD.”
— Bill McIntyre, PhD

McIntyre is the first person to earn a PhD in the dual College of Engineering, Design and Computing and School of Public Affairs (SPA) program. His dissertation on alluvial groundwater storage in the South Platte River basin combines public policy with the study of water resources engineering.
