Interns for the Future
In partnership with ACPA/National, we will be seeking a highly motivated student for a twelve-week internship program to work for the Chapter during the 2018 summer. This will be both a learning and a work experience, giving our intern the opportunity to experience different aspects of the Pennsylvania concrete pavement industry, including where technology meets construction, performing work on important special projects, and developing important career skills such as developing reports and making presentations to industry/agency groups.
Candidates must have completed at least two years of study at an accredited University that has a strong reputation in the areas of concrete, materials, pavement engineering, or construction management. The candidate will need to have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and an expressed interest in the field of concrete paving, be a resident of or willing to locate to Pennsylvania for the summer, and be open to occasional travel.
Please visit our site at a later time for details on how to apply.
