I am currently in my junior year at Washington State University in the Tri-Cities for civil engineering. I chose to do an internship in construction because it is closely related to what I want in a career and I thought it would be a great opportunity. My specific internship with TITAN Earthwork encounters civil engineers not just for every project but also every week. With this internship I was able to get hands on experience with all the work that goes into a project that they do. I know the majority of engineering students do not get the chance like I did to work along with the estimators and yard workers, so I had to take advantage of this unique opportunity. Starting out, I knew I did not have much of an idea of what construction meant nor what it encompassed. After getting thrown into the estimating department, I realized how naive I was about construction. TITAN Earthwork’s scope of work is earthwork and electrical work, so they deal with civil engineers on a regular basis. Whether it is at the beginning of a project while the estimators are working on making sense of the engineer’s plans, or towards the end at the job site to make the plans come to life like the engineer envisioned.
