DeMatteis Executive Speaker Series: Fire Protection Engineering (a career within a career)

Riza Susel, P.E. will discuss fire protection engineering. Riza Susel, P.E. is a New York State Board of Education Licensed Fire Protection Engineer with over 10 years’ experience in the MEP industry and 8 years’ experience specializing in Fire Protection. After graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic University in Troy, NY in 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, he immediately began working in MEP design in a small Long Island based firm. After working many year in the Healthcare Industry, he furthered his knowledge database by obtaining his NITC ASSE 6020 Inspectors License for Medical Gasses. Shortly after, he found his joy in Fire Protection Engineering and began to further expand his work into Life Safety Systems. After completing relevant work in the industry and learning a vast amount in this field, he obtained his Fire Protection Professional Engineering Licensure. After aiding in the growth of the small firm, he made a switch to Lizardos Engineering Associates, P.C. joining in as a Senior Engineer. Continuing to work diligently in the MEP field, he was able to rise up to his current position as Senior Associate where he currently stands running a team of MEP Engineers and Project Managing projects similar to that of Hofstra Weller Hall Renovation that occurred this past year. His expertise and drive still exists for his Fire Protection and Life Safety design.
