Civil Engineering (CE)

Civil Engineers design, build and maintain the broad range of infrastructure required to support our society. The specialties include potable and waste water systems, transportation systems, structural engineering, environmental engineering and the background to move the design through construction and project management.

CECOP Interns get hands-on experience in both the municipal and consulting world, They will develop multiple skills which can range from highly technical computer modeling, to design work and drafting, to real world construction and project management. Interns develop writing and speaking skills to deal with the public and peers. The CECOP intern will begin to meld the theoretical and technical skills from school with practical real world conditions and issues.
