Summary of Internship

My responsibilities at Goldman Copeland Associates are a mix of working with the other engineers and doing typical scrub work. The majority of my tasks include traveling around midtown Manhattan doing deliveries to other architecture and engineering firms, mostly of blueprints or other documents of important nature. Occasionally Iíll have tasks that relate to the software program AutoCAD. Several times I received brief tutorials in the actual usage of AutoCAD, but itís a program that takes much time to learn, so I usually end up performing tasks that relate to it without directly using it.
