Summer Internship REU: Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) at UT Austin

The Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) community invites undergraduates to apply for the 2019 summer NHERI Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program (NHERI REU).

Currently enrolled undergraduate students interested in mitigating the effects of natural hazards are invited to apply online at Undergraduates who have an interest in civil engineering, environmental engineering, architecture, geology, computer programming, simulation, and other related fields will greatly benefit from this research opportunity.

Intern opportunity that Kleinfelder

As a proud UW Alum from the Civil Engineering program, I wanted to forward you a terrific intern opportunity that Kleinfelder has in our Redmond office (easy busy ride from the UW). Our internship program is approximately 4 years old now and we have had really good success with UW interns and are currently interning a UW Student. Our internship program works closely with the students class schedule and allows them to gain valuable experience and knowledge in the Civil Engineering arena. In general, the intern could expect to work in both a material testing laboratory (concrete, soils, gravels, grout, and asphalt) and working out in the field with our senior inspectors and engineers on large scale projects (Sound Transit, WSDOT, and / or other municipal projects). In regards to  working hours, we would like the intern to work between 8 and 16 hours per week.

Below is the requisition description and a link to it online:
