Logan Tokos had grand plans when she entered Arizona State University (ASU) to earn a degree in Civil Engineering.

“I wanted to work on water projects in developing nations,” she explained. “I ended up gravitating toward sustainable engineering.”

Sustainable engineering is the process of designing systems that use energy and resources sustainably, in other words, at a rate that does not compromise the natural environment.

Where Logan ended up is much different. After graduation, Logan joined Hoskin Ryan’s rotational engineering program.  There, she was exposed to Computer Aided Design (CAD), Land Development, Hydrology and Surveying. She ended up finding her passion in surveying. Logan is a Survey Technician.

“I love surveying. I enjoy trying to figure out what people were thinking when they originally planned out areas,” she said.

And, Logan was beaming when discussing pure math!

Logan uses her love of mathematics to clean up line-work, update boundary lines and prepare sites for construction so that legal disputes are prevented.

A native of Colorado, Logan followed the warmer temperatures when she picked ASU and settled in the Valley. She is focused on earning a Registered Surveyor designation, which takes six years and is currently an Engineer in Training or EIT.
