I changed my major from Physics to Civil Engineering after realizing I want to apply my understanding of how things work to production. I chose an internship with Amtrak because I knew how often I would be out in the field, yet still designing in the office every week. What construction offers me is hands-on experience with what I am reading about, researching, and designing at a computer. It is extremely beneficial to me to take part in the construction process because I can see what I designed being built.
