2020 Engineering Leader Under 40: Brian Mathews, 36
Engineering Manager
Scientific Dust Collectors
Alsip, Ill.
BS Engineering, Dordt College

Brian recently undertook a special project at Scientific Dust Collectors that will advance their product’s efficiency and improve how the product is viewed favorably in the industry. On his own initiative, Brian read and applied a related ASHRAE standard to design and build a complicated test lab that conducts newly conceptualized tests on dust collectors—a large effort that will have long-term benefits for the company. Brian has also written and published a technical book and numerous technical engineering papers about various industry-related topics.

Fun fact: Brian and his wife love to travel with their two young children around the U.S. and compile special memory books about the trips as family keepsakes.
