Kiewit

Mechanical Engineer

May - August 2018 • Lenexa, KS

What I liked

Kiewit values their interns with a good internship program, Kiewit gives students a chance to see what a full time hire does on a day to day basis. They also give trainings all summer so that students can see the Kiewit standards are as well as he’ll give students an understanding of what is happening. Kiewit understands students haven’t completed all of their courses so the trainings really help! Over all Kiewit was a great company to work for!

What I liked

The people were awesome and the work was great. They put me in an apartment for the summer and paid all traveling expenses

What I wish was different

They were in between projects so there were not a ton of projects for me to work on. Just bad timing.

Advice

Come in ready to learn. I learned more this summer then a year of schooling

Field Engineer Intern

May - August 2018 • Jessup, PA

What I liked

I loved getting to meet the tradesmen. I learned so much about how to bend pipes, install thermal indicators, and I got to learn about their life experiences and lessons.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been in their rotating equipment department rather than instrumentation. While Instrumentation was interesting, it didn't apply to my major as much as steam turbines do.

Advice

I would recommend spending as much time out in the field as possible, even if you are just shadowing a tradesman for a day.
