Start dateMay 21, 2014, negotiable
End date8/31/14, negotiable
Required intern qualifications
Ability to work outside to perform the work described above, and a willingness to learn how to use electronic equipment, and perform other functions as required. Work day is generally from 8am to 4:30 pm weekdays, but may begin earlier or end later, depending upon the circumstances. There may also be an opportunity to work Saturdays which would be optional and not required. Employee would be paid hourly.
Desired outcomes of internship
I believe the student would be exposed to a variety of surveying projects, and that the knowledge and experience gained would be a good background for any engineering career in the future. Too few engineers have a solid surveying background.
