Selective Program for Internships in Civil and Environmental Engineering (SPICE)

Click here for Brochure

This internship program is designed to provide qualified students in the Environmental/Civil engineering programs with additional engineering work experience outside of and in addition to the classroom environment. The program is intended to encourage paid internships; however, unpaid internship positions are also welcome, especially in public Weldingagencies and governmental offices where paid internships may not be available.  Work experience includes, but is not limited to the many aspects of planning/ design/ construction/ maintenance of infrastructure such as commercial, residential and industrial buildings, bridges, roadways, drainage and storm water systems, sewerage, wastewater treatment and re-use, drinking water treatment and distribution, water systems, solid waste management systems, environmental restoration of degraded sites, environmental modeling, pollution prevention, lifecycle analysis, subsurface water treatment, ground water treatment, dams, power plants, air pollution control, canals, river navigation, traffic control, and more. In general, Environmental/Civil engineering internships ensure that interns get to learn the basics by doing and assisting senior engineers on real projects. Practical experience gained during internships can be as important as coursework in engineering.
