Background Information

Boswell Engineering was founded in Ridgefield Park, NJ in 1924 by David C. Boswell. As the world around him was quickly expanding, David recognized the need for a strong engineering firm. David’s sons, Howard L. Boswell, Sr. and David J. Boswell, continued the ownership of the company. They each made their own contribution to its growth. After David C. Boswell passed away, the late Howard Boswell, Jr. continued the exciting expansion of Boswell Engineering. Today, the company is headed by Dr. Stephen T. Boswell along with his brothers Bruce and Kevin. Boswell Engineering is known in the engineering community for quality of service and high standards of excellence. It focuses on many different disciplines of engineering, from civil to underwater engineering. In its 85th year, Boswell Engineering continues the dreams of its founder as it thrives, ranking nationally among Engineering News - Record's Top Design and Construction Management Firms.

Summary of Internship

I will not say that interning at Boswell Engineering is easy, but I certainly feel that I have all the resources that I need at hand. While I work on everything from editing Word documents to creating price estimates and drafting tax maps, I know I will never have an unanswered question. Although Boswell’s building is very large and diverse, I work closely with a specific team of people, each of whom I feel comfortable asking for help. I feel very privileged to gain a glimpse into the everyday life of an engineer in a genuine office setting.
