Summary of Internship
At Page Consultants Inc., there are many things you can do at first if you have engineering experience. If you donít, it is still not very hard to pick up, but that usually depends on the person. Some of the things I learned started from simple drawings of site plans and correcting errors on drawings to designing more complex site plans from scratch, isometric drawings, and drainage profiles; there was also the small job of making 36Ē copies of these drawings. The most important task that I ever received was the on-hand experience of going out with the surveyors to survey the land for the site in almost any weather condition; for me, it was the cold. It is a great experience because of the on-hand experience with the many applications of civil engineering through a program they use called AutoCAD, and the cooperation of the employees to help and work with.
