H2M architects + engineers

Civil Engineering Intern

June - August 2021 • Melville, NY

What I liked

The program was very educational and hands on. I enjoyed being immersed in real life projects that were currently underway.

What I wish was different

I wish the interns had more of a chance to gain knowledge from each other and get to know each other better. I would have liked to work together with fellow interns on different projects.

Advice

Personally I think school is not an accurate representation of what the life of a civil engineer looks like. I would strongly encourage an underclassman to have multiple internship experiences. I would also stress the idea of asking questions throughout the internship and getting different peoples perspective on certain projects.

Junior Account

June - August 2019 • Melville, NY

What I liked

I got the opportunity as an intern to take over a full-time employee position as a junior accountant. It was an incredible experience and I obtained real world knowledge of what it is like working in a corporate accounting atmosphere

What I wish was different

I wish that I had already graduated college so that I could have the opportunity to be offered a full-time position

Advice

Keep working hard and your work will not go unnoticed - also, don't be afraid to ask questions! You are not expected to know how to do each and every thing. It is better to ask questions and be sure you are doing your work correctly, then to guess and have it be wrong and turn into a bigger issue later on.

Structural Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Melville, NY

What I liked

I speak very highly about my internship experience at H2M. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge that has helped me so far this school year. I assisted project engineers with the design of various structural components using ASCE and AISC design codes and manuals. I shadowed project engineers on site visits to inspect conditions, perform measurements, and monitor certain stages of construction. I also learned how to draft and edit details on Revit, build models on STAAD, and properly use Enercalc to check designs.

What I wish was different

I do wish that I worked more with interns from the various other engineering departments, but that is only a very minor setback.

Advice

Challenge yourself to always learn more and always ask if there is anything that you can work on.
