Part-Time Intern

Purpose & Need

Part of Patel, Greene & Associates’ (PGA) mission is “to elevate our profession.” We pursue that goal, in part, by mentoring the next generation of engineering professionals, and showcasing the many ways that civil engineers can positively impact their communities and the world. Many of PGA’s interns gain “real world” experience while simultaneously pursuing their degree during the school year. Interns also have the option to work full-time during the summer months. Regardless of the discipline(s) you choose to support, you will be working directly with senior staff on projects across Florida, participating in software and technical trainings, and getting out into the field on site reviews. The ideal candidate is ready to embrace hands-on experience, tackle new and challenging tasks, and jumpstart their career as a future engineer.
