My name is Ryan Beaton and I am going into my senior year as a civil engineering major at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I chose to become a civil engineer because of the influence of my family. My grandfather was a civil engineer, and my father and sister are both currently civil engineers as well. From a young age, I was always fascinated with the design and construction of structures. I can remember my dad showing me plans and explaining the steps to follow said plans from start to finish. I wanted to do a construction internship so I could see first hand the field work associated with a given project.
