Civil engineering student Lucy Richardson spent her summer working with the Traffic Design Center at Garver’s North Little Rock, Ark. office.
“I was drawn to the internship at Garver because I knew I would have great opportunities to work on major projects and learn from the best engineers in the region,” Lucy said. “I’ve always been impressed by Garver’s strong reputation and wide variety of projects, and I knew I would be able to thoroughly explore my interests in traffic engineering.”
“The best part of my internship at Garver has been the opportunity to dive right into projects. On my first day of work, before I even filled out my new hire paperwork, I started working on a report for a road extension, and things haven't slowed down since then!”
“The Traffic Group had several big deadlines this summer and Lucy was a great help to us in meeting those deadlines,” said Senior Project Manager Nicci Tiner. “Lucy gained valuable experiences working with MicroStation and AutoCAD to assist us with signing plans, maintenance of traffic plans, and signal plans.”
“An internship at Garver is a perfect fit for anyone who wants to get hands-on experience and learn not just one but many new things every day,” Lucy said. “I'd recommend a Garver internship to anyone who wants to work hard and be a part of exciting projects all over the region.”
Following her summer internship, Lucy will return to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where she will be a junior civil engineering student with a minor in art history.
Garver internships offer hands-on experience for future engineers in all of our business lines. This summer Garver gave on-the-job training to 14 interns from a variety of different schools (on staff at various Garver offices).
