Michael Baker Corporation is an engineering and energy management corporation headquartered in the Pittsburgh suburb of Moon Township, Pennsylvania. Its headquarters is located in Airside Business Park, an office park near the Pittsburgh International Airport that the company designed. Baker was formed in 1940 under the direction of a military engineer, Michael Baker, Jr. The company was initially a small government subcontractor, but has grown into an international firm in the past half century.

Baker offers many services under its engineering umbrella. As an architectural firm, it designs buildings and assesses construction of facilities for private individuals or corporations. The company also designs electrical systems and fire prevention systems, and it studies spatial relations, surveys properties, and determines the feasibility of construction plans. Baker also specializes in mechanical engineering, which is useful in the redesign or remodeling of older structures. The company also provides civil engineering to various government departments, ranging from designing water pipelines for communities to mining operations for companies to high-tech equipment for the US military. Engineers at Baker also design highways, railroads, and airports.

The corporation's energy related services generally involve resource and employee management. However, the company also engineers pipelines and rigging equipment for oil companies.

One arm of Baker is dedicated to environmental concerns. The company offers air and water quality controls, environmental safety analysis, contamination analysis, and other general environmental studies.
