“I liked how I moved from different departments and got to see many different aspects of the roadways design and implementation. I worked with permitting, road design, and the lab over two summers.”

“I worked for TxDOT's Transportation Planning & Programming Division, the part of the agency that creates and manages the state's federally mandated transportation planning plans. The work I did was very much in line with my interests. All the TxDOT employees I met were very enthusiastic about working with interns, as they viewed them as the future of the agency and clearly wanted them (and me!) to stay with the agency after graduation. Having that in mind, all the full-time employees I worked with very intentionally invested a lot of time in showing me how to do their work, and as a result, after some training I was given many tasks that the full-time employees do! Additionally, my supervisor allowed, and even encouraged, me to speak with the higher-ups in the division, and they were very happy to talk to me. The director of my division section even sat down with me for three hours straight to tell me as much as he could about TPP. It was fascinating! Just writing this is making me being there!”
