This summer I was an intern with KSA in the Aviation Services group in their Sugar Land, Texas office. This internship was a valuable addition to my academic studies. I enjoyed using several skills I am familiar with from college coursework including surveying, excel, and Civil 3D. I was able to take initiative beyond the basic requirements of the job and I regularly worked with Cole, Nathan, and Phillip – all civil engineers. They were great and would always answer any questions I had.

I decided on engineering because I love hands on work, problem solving and helping others. I thought civil would let me do just that. I learned so much this summer, and I also realized how much I have yet to learn. I was able to learn about all the different processes that go into a project (such as all the components to marketing, design, biding, construction, and close out). I was able to help with all of these different aspects and get to know how everything flowed/worked.

My favorite experience was getting to go to the SG.061C site and see all the construction work going on at the airport. Nathan and the RPR, Steve, would explain the different components and show me all the different things that were happening. It was awesome to be able to see the plan on paper/see the design and then see it being implemented.  I loved all the site visits I was able to go on. This experience helped create a concrete foundation for my career and further work experience. I am appreciative of KSA’s time and thank them for all that I have learned over the past three months.
