Mike Wilson


Principal, Austin

As a structural engineer, my job is to know the 'why' when it comes to construction. Growing up in a family of general contractors, I learned from a young age how things are built - but I was always interested in the "why.'”

Raised just outside of Austin and educated at Texas A&M University, Mike is a homegrown talent. Since joining the firm in 2011, he quickly advanced at DCI's Austin office and solidified client relationships throughout the United States. He is the firm's design leader with the steel modular construction while also being well-versed in concrete, composite concrete, structural steel, wood, cold-formed steel, and masonry. Mike works toward increasing company growth, mentors staff, and manages complex projects. Contractors and architects who work with him appreciate his solutions-oriented interaction.

  • If you weren't an engineer, what would you be?
    I would still be in the A/E/C industry, most likely as a general contractor.
  • What is your favorite place in Austin?
    It would have to be between Rimers Ranch Park and Pedernales Falls State Park which are great hiking areas in Southwest Austin. I can take my family out for hikes on the weekend to enjoy nature and there is access to water for swimming in the Texas summer heat.
  • What is your favorite piece of historical architecture?
    St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Czech Republic.
