I am a civil engineering student at The University of Georgia. I plan on using my degree to go into road and cite design. A critical part of cite design is to understand what happens on the project cite. This was why I chose to intern at the construction company, E.R. Snell Contractors Inc. Being able to work in the field on a base crew for a month gave me valuable experience to see what tasks workers perform in order to bring projects to life. On the crew I was able to hear from different professionals on the site that were able to give me tips and information about their jobs, as well as different project designs they have seen. This is valuable because many design engineers have never worked in the field. My experience in the field will help me become a better design engineer in the future because of my understanding of the on-site tasks and how it correlates to the overall design.
