Captain Timothy Callahan, P.E., U.S. Air Force, has been honored as the nation's top federal engineer. As director of the Air Force Civil Engineer Basic Course, Captain Timothy Callahan, P.E. leads 30 civil engineering school faculty and 28 guest instructors. This role has integrated 176 officers into the career field’s first “total force” initial skills courses, while simultaneously orchestrating the development of distance learning content for future editions of the course.
One of his most notable courses while working with the Air Force Institute of Technology was its first provincial reconstruction team project management course. He developed the course that taught 77 engineers across the US Air Force, Navy, and Army how best to execute a $400 million commander emergency response program mission in Afghanistan. He has also revamped how the school’s students provide feedback, reducing costs by 90%. He holds a bachelor’s and a master’s in civil engineering, both earned from the University of Southern California.
