Summer Interns 2024

As the school year comes to an end and summer begins, we are excited to pass our knowledge and experience to the next generation of leaders in the engineering industry. One of our most cherished core values is ensuring that our employees feel empowered, and this extends to our internship program.

For over a decade, Great West has been proud to offer “real world engineering experience” to a select group of summer engineering interns. Each intern works under the supervision of a senior engineer, gaining hands-on project experience and valuable knowledge as they prepare to enter the workforce. We are eager to introduce the new faces you may encounter in our offices and on job sites!
