WHAT OUR INTERNS DO
Fieldwork: The best way to experience the work we do is to see it in the field. Our interns visit project sites before, during, and after construction. Fieldwork includes photo documentation, measurements, traffic counts, field meetings, and environmental evaluations.
Design: You will have the opportunity to assist with various designs and calculations. These may include geometry, grading, hydrology, quantity calculations, and cost estimation.
Drafting: The biggest tool we use for design is CADD, specifically Bentley MicroStation. By the end of your internship, you will be proficient in drafting and plan preparation, or a variety of environmental tasks. You will also learn how to operate our scanners, plotters, and copiers used to produce our client deliverables.
Research: Knowing where to find the right information is important. You will become familiar with the industry standards and reference manuals that govern our designs.
Writing: An important aspect of our work is being able to document our design process and convey it to the client and public. You will be exposed to technical report writing and the preparation of project delivery documentation reports.
