Find 2019 Civil Engineering Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for 2017 civil engineering internships or entry-level civil engineering jobs? Civil engineers design, build, operate, and maintain structures such as industrial complexes, buildings such as community centers, and public works such as bridges. Nearly half of all civil engineers work in the engineering services field and nearly a quarter work for state and local governments. Other civil engineers work for various public or private employers in areas such as nonresidential building construction or federal contracting.

Civil Engineering Internships

Employers often seek out grads who have had a civil engineering internship. An internship will give you practical experience assisting senior engineers on real projects. This experience can be just as important as your grades in engineering courses.

To land a summer civil engineering internship, you’ll need both strong academic performances and professor recommendations. You’ll also need to have some experience with Microsoft Excel, AutoCad, and Engineering Design. Exposure to Civil3D is a plus. Some employers prefer interns with an Engineer in Training (EIT) designation, which can be accomplished by completing three years of an ABET-accredited engineering program and passing the FE exam.

As an intern, you’ll likely be placed on a team with engineers and assigned projects such as modeling aspects of a project using CAD software; providing design, calculations, drafting, and administrative support; or maintaining databases. An internship will give you insight into how engineering science is applied, and you’ll get invaluable feedback and coaching on your performance.

The Career Options

Since civil engineering is such a broad field, you typically specialize in an area such as construction engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, or transport engineering. There are many job options for civil engineers such as design, research, or teaching. Public works directors, supervisors of a construction site, city managers, and city engineers have supervisory roles on construction sites and monitor operations, solve problems, and ensure safety and regulatory compliance.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of civil engineering jobs is expected to grow 8% over the next decade, which is about average.
