Mechanical + Acoustical

Jared Carrier is a Mechanical & Acoustical Engineer who joined McClure Engineering in 2018. Our Acoustical department was formed in 1998 with the hiring of Phil Wentz and our reputation has been growing ever since. After developing an interest in Acoustical Engineering in his sophomore year at MIZZOU, Jared applied for an internship at McClure Engineering. While he was ultimately not chosen that year, that didn’t stop him. It just gave him just the kick he needed to develop his acoustical expertise further and after a school research position and a summer internship at another firm, he came to work full-time for McClure Engineering.

In early 2023, Jared earned his Professional Engineering license which is no small feat. In addition to earning his degree, it also required working under a Professional Engineer for at least four years, passing two intensive competency exams, and earning a license from their state’s licensure board.  All engineers are encouraged to obtain their Professional Engineering license as soon as practically possible so to help in this effort, McClure Engineering will pay 100% of the initial registration fee, up to an allowance towards study materials plus paid time off for the day of the exam.  McClure Engineering will also annually pay the registration fee for all engineers who maintain their licenses in good standing.

To compliment his acoustical engineering expertise, Jared is also (one) of McClure Engineering’s famed musicians. He started playing guitar at age 10 and throughout his teenage years, he and his bandmate (aka Dad) could be found playing any number of gigs across Illinois until he headed off to college. Once back in St. Louis, Jared started his own band called The Absoults and you can find them rocking out at Helen Fitzgerald’s, Sybergs, and Westport Social most nights.

My favorite part of McClure Engineering is our community. With a group of people that includes track car racers, gearheads, artists, photographers, weightlifters and musicians, it is never hard to find someone to connect with.
