Summer Interns 2023

With school out and summer in full swing, we are excited to share our knowledge and experience with future leaders in the engineering industry.  One of the most rewarding core values we take to heart is empowered employees which extends to our internship program.

For the past decade, Great West has taken pride in providing “real world engineering experience” to a handful of selected summer engineering interns.  Each of the interns below is overseen by a senior engineer during the summer receiving direct project experience and gaining knowledge as they prepare to enter the workforce.
