INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

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.

BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO

Internships are about gaining real experiences to better your knowledge and understanding of the career you're interested in. You will be treated like a full-time staff member with the same learning opportunities. 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!

WHY SHIVE-HATTERY?
