Transportation Civil Engineer Intern

May 2022 - August 2022 Sidney, OH
“During my summer internship with ODOT I was able to apply much of what I have learned from school to actual work that is done in the field. This was one of my favorite parts from working there this summer. Some other parts I really liked included who I worked with, all of the people I worked with really let me feel welcomed and helped me grow from who I was and what I knew prior to work this summer. I also got to learn the processes that go into construction and how those processes work in the field, from either how a bridge is constructed or how ODOT works with the different contractors.”

Engineer Co-op

August 2021 - December 2021 Sidney, OH
“I enjoyed having a variety of tasks in the district 7 design department, including review of various plan sets, attending design meetings, helping the survey crew in the field, and doing field visits while projects are in the planning stage. As I became more familiar with programs like Microstation, I was given more advanced assignments. ”
