Subject: Internships Opportunities for Engineering Students
The American Public Works Association Monterey Bay Chapter launched an internship program in 2011. The Chapter serves as liaison between students and public works agencies/firms willing to hire interns during the summer or school semester. Our goal is to place engineering students with cities, counties, districts or private firms to give students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a rewarding profession. This year we plan to contribute $4,000 to reimburse member agencies that hire interns.
