Alejandro joined the internship program during the summer of 2016. He gained a new perception of the world by working for Whitson Engineers.
"Whitson Engineers provides a sense of family in the workspace, everyone is welcoming and willing to help at a momentís notice."
As an intern, Alejandro gained insight into the design and surveying processes that will serve him well as he continues his education. Being a part of the Whitson Engineers team challenged him in multiple ways. It challenged his traditional way of problem solving. He learned that no problem is solved by an individual on the contrary, they are solved through collaboration and team efforts. While working closely with the engineers, Alejandro gained experience with designing and navigating through CAD.
He is currently attending UC Berkley where he will be pursuing his degree in civil engineering.
"I loved my experience and strive to continue to learn more about the real-world applications of civil engineering."
