Jameelah Muhammah Ingram ’04

Jameelah Muhammad Ingram was inspired to study architecture and structural engineering by the soaring skyscrapers and beautiful bridges in her hometown of Chicago. Her mother, who is an artist, and father, a U.S. Navy veteran, greatly influenced her path.

Jameelah is a lead structural engineer in the Washington, D.C., office of WSP USA. She works on behalf of the Maryland Department of Transportation-Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) for the Purple Line Light Rail Transit Project. As a project engineer, she assists the real estate team with the acquisition of right of way. She has over a decade of experience in bridge design, inspection, and rehabilitation and also completed an earthquake engineering internship in Tokyo. She earned a master’s in civil engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

In 2013, Jameelah was selected as one of the American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) New Faces of Civil Engineering. She received the Meritorious Service Award from the ASCE National Capital Section for engineering outreach efforts with students in 2018. She values the diverse career options engineering degrees can lead to and is always eager to share this with students.

Jameelah recently started to combine learning about film and television production with her engineering skillset and is creating content about bridges. She resides in Washington, D.C., with her husband, Jesse, a fellow engineer. She enjoys travel, comedy, and visiting the museums.
