  • Internship Experience

    A 450-hour required internship gives students valuable, real-world experience and the opportunity to develop their project management skills under the guidance of an experienced construction management professional. The practical, hands-on immersion in the field reinforces a commitment to the profession and helps students narrow a career path. Many employers consider internship experience in the hiring process and often look to their own interns as the best candidates for full-time positions.

    The Construction Management program implemented the internship requirement more than 10 years ago. Since then, at least 400 students have interned at more than 150 construction companies in approximately 30 states. Students are paid during their internship and are usually compensated for out-of-region travel costs. Most students intern in the tri-state area and participate in an array of projects, including highways, wind farms, power plants, water treatment plants and light rail projects, as well as major commercial and industrial construction projects.
