Do you know an architectural or engineering student looking for an interesting and educational summer internship? Or is that student you?
AISC is now accepting applications from students enrolled in at least the third year of a structural, architectural or civil engineering program. Applicants also must have completed at least one course in structural steel design. The internship is a full-time position at AISC’s headquarters in downtown Chicago and supports the AISC Engineering and Research Department in developing technical resources for structural steel design.
“The summer internship at AISC is a very unique learning experience because of AISC’s broad reach in the structural steel design, fabrication and construction industry,” said Jie Zuo, a former summer intern who now works for AISC as a staff engineer in the Engineering and Research Department.
“AISC is a wealth of information and resources, and it was a great experience to become immersed in different aspects of steel construction,” continued Zuo. “You have the opportunity to see the inner workings of the development of the Steel Specification and contribute to that effort. You get the chance to tour a fabrication shop and see firsthand the processes and procedures required to fabricate steel. Overall, the opportunities that this internship provides are plentiful, and you would not have a similar experience anywhere else.”
Interested students should submit their resumes, including a list of related coursework, by March 1, 2013, to firstname.lastname@example.org with “E&R Summer Internship” in the subject line.
