Summer Success Stories: Internship Features

Even a little something called summer break didn’t stop UW CEE students from honing their engineering skills. It was a busy summer for many undergraduates who decided to use their time off from school to pursue internships with a variety of companies. From working on a light rail system in Hawaii to the Elliott Bay Seawall Project in Seattle, several undergraduate seniors advanced their skills with real-world experience.
