Civil Engineering Intern - Traffic and Safety

April 2018 - August 2018 Ann Arbor, MI
“I liked that this was an entirely new experience for me. I came into this internship knowing very little about data collection, road maintenance, and the road commission. I left know quite a lot about the everyday workings of a county road commission. I also like that the organization placed a lot of trust in their interns. If you work hard your supervisors will trust your judgment in many different situations. ”
