Scott Higinbotham has been practicing structural engineering since graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree in 2000. During his time at Penn State Scott also worked for two well-known companies in the construction industry.  First at an Assistant Superintendent with Barton Malow Construction in Baltimore, MD gaining valuable field experience in building construction; and second with Heery International’s structural engineering division in Atlanta, GA gaining first hand engineering experience prior to earning his degree.

After graduation from Penn State, Scott began working for Rathgeber / Goss Associates in Rockville, MD as a design engineer.  Here Scott quickly progressed from basic engineering duties to fully managing his own projects through design and construction.  This position provided Scott with a solid background in structural engineering of commercial structures varying in size from an average restaurant to a 14 story office building.

In 2004, Scott decided he was ready for a change and elected to leave the city lifestyle of Washington D.C. in favor of a more rural setting in Bozeman, MT where he accepted a position as a project engineer at Nishkian Monks, PLLC.  Scott quickly progressed to a project management position and soon became a partner in the firm starting in 2006.  During his time in this position Scott aided in the growth and development of the company and designed and managed hundreds of structural engineering projects.  These projects included a large variety of materials and project types covering virtually every facet of structural engineering for the building industry.  One unique specialty that Scott developed during this time was providing consulting engineering services to the glazing industry; primarily through The Glazing Stop, owned by long time acquaintance Chris Cerminara.

Scott’s desire to build a truly unique and client focused engineering firm from the ground up, along with his interest in the structural analysis of glazing systems eventually led him to resign and form a new partnership with Chris Cerminara and together they founded AE Dynamics, LLC in early 2012.  Scott is in responsible charge of all engineering activities of AE Dynamics.  He maintains an active role in every engineering project and works closely with each of the firm’s clients to understand and address their specific needs.  Scott’s passion for quality engineering and client focused services is evident in every project that AE Dynamics designs.
