Cornwell Engineering Group was founded in 1985 by our President , Dr. David A. Cornwell. After a successful career as a Professor at Michigan State University, Dr. Cornwell ventured into the consulting field on the belief that state-of-the-art research and technology could be merged with practical evaluations and designs for utilities to provide the best of both worlds for the environmental profession.
