Efficient, Passionate & Sustainable Vision

Founded in 1983, Design Engineers has grown steadily and carefully, always striving to be a professional, healthy and collaborative environment.

Our work is highly interdependent, often with design partners across the country or across the globe. We have embraced approaches to work that empower communication and work flexibility, resulting in a decentralized and remote-friendly environment.

Our Cedar Rapids headquarters is perched on a hilltop surrounded by working farms, halfway between the Kirkwood campus and the Eastern Iowa Regional Airport. Abundant light and multiple open conferencing spaces with full AV-networking reinforce our transparent, collaborative mission while a comfortable training center keeps everyone on the same page.

We added an office in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin to increase our knowledge base and grow our opportunities for challenging, dynamic design. As we consider the path ahead we look forward to the continued evolution of the DE charter to serve our clients efficiently, passionately, and sustainably.
