Summary of Internship
TranSystems offers vast amounts of opportunities for its interns through creating/editing project engineering drawings using both Micro Station and AutoCAD computer aided drawing software. In addition updating and maintaining highway bridge inspection data using Microsoft Access. As an intern at TranSystems, I have been exposed to tons of different tasks relating to fields in architecture, 3D rendering as well as database management. My main tasks at TranSystems were to create/update entries in Microsoft Access for over 200 culverts in the New Jersey district. Entries that would be sent to the owners of the culverts, which may be the New Jersey Department of Transportation, County Public Works Departments or local municipalities. Also, I was given the task to modify and update previous MicroStation projects in order to make corrections that were necessary. In the process, I was able to gain experience with a new remarkable engineering program which Iím sure I will use as I pursue a degree in engineering.
