INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

As an intern, you will work on real client projects, mentored by all levels of our structural group staff. Our group works on a wide variety of project and material types related to industrial, healthcare, education, government, and commercial buildings. Because we are a full-service firm, you have the unique opportunity to collaborate with other in-house architecture and engineering disciplines. You will also learn software commonly used by structural engineering consultants, so you can hit the ground running when you start your first full-time job.

These experiences will help you understand the career progression of structural engineers and grow your technical skills. From these real-world interactions, you will develop the skills to communicate and collaborate with peers and clients while building your professional network. 

Why Shive-Hattery?

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 AmphitheaterCedar 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.
