McMillen Engineering, Inc. values education at all levels. We believe that education provides growth opportunities not only personally and professionally, but also collectively as a society. Over the years we've provided several informative workshops and trainings for colleagues and local professionals, conducted event presentations at the request of partner organizations, and faciliated educational programs for high school students throughout Fayette County, PA.

"I believe education is the best gift we can give to future generations to empower them to sustain an ever-improving quality of life, so we need to encourage them and create in them a passion for learning. I believe business should play a key role in expanding education beyond the classroom by forming partnerships with schools and others to contribute beyond what the classroom can offer. We have resources, knowledge and especially life experience to encourage young learners to develop a desire for learning to go beyond the classroom."   - Terry McMillen, Sr.
