Michael J. Ganas is a licensed professional engineer and the director of a leading marine engineering firm within the U.S. Following a tour of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter crew chief with the 17th Air Cavalry, he earned a degree in civil engineering from Cornell University. Shortly thereafter, his love of the sea prompted him to pursue a career as a deep sea commercial diver, heading a wide array of marine construction projects. This eventually led him into his current occupation, which takes on the challenges of civil engineering in underwater environments.
