At Spalding DeDecker we make communities stronger.  We strive for excellence as we create the infrastructure that connects people with their jobs, schools, parks and homes.  Our transportation designs get people moving on two, four, or eighteen wheels over pathways, roads and highways, and our municipal designs help create the parks, neighborhoods and commercial centers that are so much a part of daily life. As a Best and Brightest Employer, we provide an amazing place to work; we are a top organization that believes in rewarding strong performance; each member of our team can grow as far each of their abilities will take them!

About the Position

We have a current opening for a Civil Engineering Summer Intern to work closely with our team on a variety of engineering projects.  In this position you’ll be part of different infrastructure projects including municipal plan review and design and road/transportation projects.  As part of a team, you will be responsible for leading specific projects and tasks while being mentored by our Professional Engineers.

As you progress through this 12 week program you will gain experience in all aspects of design and construction. You’ll spend some of your time in the office on plan reviews and design, and other time working working outdoors on live construction sites seeing how your designs are actually constructed. All supported by engineering professionals of all disciplines.

You will work with software such as AutoCAD updating designs, BlueBeam and Field Manager to help projects stay on track,  along with Leica and Trimble GPS survey equipment to support our Survey team, and more.

If you’re a student looking to work as a part of an outstanding team as you grow your career in construction, we encourage you to apply today!
