Being able to design a project for Belize and then having the chance to go to that country and help with the construction is an experience that many do not have the chance to take advantage of.
Civil Engineering Internships
The University of Mount Union’s Civil Engineering Program was designed with a strong focus in hands-on, experiential learning. Internships are an integral part of preparing engineering students for the real world of engineering.
Civil engineering internships allow students:
- To experience the dynamics of implementing the on-time deliverables of a civil engineering project for an actual company
- A deeper understanding of what they are learning in the classroom
- A unique and beneficial opportunity to network with working engineers and managers in their field of interest
The University of Mount Union’s civil engineering faculty has strong, professional relationships with industrial contacts and is often able to help students locate internship opportunities. Also, Mount Union’s Engineering Advisory Board, a network of advising engineers and leaders, will assist in finding internship opportunities.
Last Academic Year, 80% of civil engineering students were able to find internship experiences. Mount Union’s civil engineering students have been able to benefit from interning with highly successful companies and government agencies, such as ODOT and E-Crane.
