Immerse yourself in the world of civil engineering!

The STEP Internship Program is a 12- to 15-week immersive experience where students explore the many areas of expertise within the transportation engineering industry. STEP interns spend a minimum of one week with each of PGA’s core engineering disciplines (Roadway, Drainage, Structures, and Traffic & ITS), as well as learn from other departments including PD&E, Environmental Science, Planning, Landscape Architecture, Facilities Preservation, Construction Engineering Inspection (CEI), even Contract Management and Marketing. At the end of the program, students will have a much clearer understanding of what all goes into bringing a project from pursuit, through design, and into construction.

Get ready for:
  • On-the-job training
  • Professional development and growth
  • Building professional relationships
  • Attending field reviews
  • Gaining insight into long-term career interests
  • In-depth insight into the transportation industry
