Summer Internship - Engineering

Engineering, Scientific And Technical Intern - Engineering


Engineering, science, and technology students may apply for internships in our seasonal construction, STAMPP (Systematic Technique to Analyze and Manage Pennsylvania Pavement), or roadside development. Construction internships give students experience in inspection, materials testing, and documentation related to highway and bridge construction projects. STAMPP survey crews collect data on roadway conditions. A limited number of positions in the roadside development program provide experience in vegetation and soils management.

First consideration must be given to applicants who are enrolled in civil engineering, followed by, closely related engineering or engineering support majors. The overall goal is to hire only students who can be reached for permanent employment upon graduation, resulting in a career progression within the Department.


Students must be full-time (carrying 12 or more undergraduate credits or 9 or more graduate credits), in good academic standing, and must be enrolled in a major in the Engineering or Engineering Technology field to be considered for internship positions. Engineering majors include Civil Engineering, Architectural Engineering, Civil Structural Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, Civil Engineering Systems, or any Engineering discipline with anticipation of obtaining 24 credits in Civil Engineering or Engineering Technology.

Engineering Technology majors include: Engineering Mechanics, Mechanical, Architectural, Structural, Contracting Building and Construction, Electrical, or Electronics. Majors in career studies with anticipation of obtaining at least 12 credit hours in drafting, design, surveying, and other related courses are also acceptable. Students must also have completed their 1st year in a 2 year Associate Degree Program or 4 year Bachelor Degree program.

Wage Rate: $12.43 per hour
