Summary of Internship

My internship experience was a very exciting time because i was able to do the field i really enjoy. I worked with many different groups of Civil engineer even counting my brothers group. During the time i was here the few groups i worked with, had won a very big projects. These projects were all with recreating cities and different buildings which is a really big accomplishment for the company to win and complete. My main responsibilities as a civil engineer was to keep track of all the projects and then fill out permit requests. After I learned the basic commands for drawing in AutoCAD and my skills in the program increased, I was able to help out with more difficult drawings. The drawings I made where important designs for special projects, concept plans, and lastly small change to other designs. The greatest experience of this internship was to work with the few cities that were being recreated. A lot of work went into these plans but, i was able to learn that everything does not always get built as drawn by the engineers. As an intern I could not go on site visits but from the pictures that were collected you are able to notice that it is not the same.
