Thank you for your interest in Shive-Hattery! As you consider Shive-Hattery meeting your career pathing interests, please check out this recent article including some of our former Interns turned Full-Time Staff.

It is crucial for you to have a resource to candidly discuss you career choices. As an intern, you are partnered with a mid-to-senior-level employee to form a supportive mentor/mentee relationship built on your shared Shive-Hattery experiences. Connecting one-on-one in a relaxed, informal way allows for the development of professional relationships that complement your classroom learning and makes for a richer Shive-Hattery experience.
Interns gain different levels of experience from the office and the field. You will work on real projects our team is currently involved in. As a civil engineering intern you will work on a variety of project types including site design, surface water resources, and transportation. These experiences will help you grow and understand more about the Civil engineering profession, working collaboratively with project teams, and how to serve the needs of clients. From these real-world interactions, you will develop the skills to collaborate with peers and clients while building your professional network.

At Shive-Hattery, you work on actual client projects and have the opportunity to see your work make a direct impact on Shive-Hattery, as well as the community. This is a great way to broaden your experience and bulk up your portfolio!
Our learning and teaching culture is founded on collaboration. You will learn from and teach other employees while working across disciplines. You will grow your skills and continue your professional growth at Shive-Hattery.
About the Cedar Rapids Office
Located in the heart of Downtown Cedar Rapids and alongside the Cedar River, the city is full of life and also, uniquely, five seasons! Like all other cities in Iowa and beyond, we experience fall, winter, summer and spring, but our fifth season affords us the time and ability to enjoy all other seasons and thus life. We are often called The City of Five Seasons and you can find that this identity is deeply woven into the community of the City of Cedar Rapids.
The view from our newly renovated office in the historic Armstrong Building is vast and wide, allowing us clear viewings of the city and its famous sunsets. Locally owned coffee shops, restaurants, theatres, stores and nightlife hubs are sprinkled everywhere, both near and far, offering lots to do at anytime. We are accompanied by several Fortune 500 corporations in our area, including Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins), Casey’s General Store and Principal Financial Group; it’s not all about big businesses here though.
There are many exciting amenities that thrive here including the outdoor McGrath Amphitheater, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Orchestra Iowa, Newbo City Market, Kirkwood Culinary Kitchen, Veterans Memorial Stadium and The US Cellular Center. The streets and endless bikeways are buzzing with cyclists, especially during RAGBRAI (The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa). The list goes on with many outdoor recreational features, including the Indian Creek Nature Center, hiking and walking (over 100 miles of trails); numerous local, county, and state parks; boating and fishing opportunities; and access to exceptional golf courses, just to name a few.
